I revamped my old poetry book from my TPT site, and now have added this. The new and improved ready-to-use poetry book has pictures on every page and includes poems for year celebrations (Columbus Day, Groundhog Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, etc.), common units (apples, weather, seasons, pumpkins, safety, animals, etc.), and teaching topics (rhyming, spelling, fire safety, etc.). There are 27 different poems in the poetry book, all appropriate for younger grades. There is a full color cover for Kindergarten, First Grade or Second Grade and back cover. Several of the poems can actually be used as songs, and the matching tune is noted on the poem. In my classroom I use the poetry to help students with concepts of print, letters, sounds, sight words, fluency, punctuation, sentence format, etc. Each student gets their own copy. Occasionally I will use it as a language arts center as well. The students love it, and I find it is a great way to integrate science and social studies topics into the little time that we have as teachers! Enjoy!
