PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Eighth in a series! Poem: "The School Pet"

Whether or not your class has a school pet, students will appreciate how the narrator in this poem reaches a decision about a school pet possibly becoming a pet at home! This poem was inspired by actual events that occurred when my son was in fifth grade.

Copies of the poem, "The School Pet," can be used for fluency and word work activities during initial instruction. Copies can also be included in booklets for partner reading. When teachers use student-friendly poetry for repeated reading opportunities, reluctant readers can be encouraged and motivated to engage in literacy activities that will increase their fluency, phonics skills, decoding abilities, sight word recognition, and, ultimately, their comprehension. Familiar rereading of poems can be especially effective for struggling and emergent readers.

The poem and activities in the guide have been used with elementary students in urban school settings. The students included ESL, RTI, and Special Ed students, along with Regular Ed students. A two-page teacher's guide with suggestions for week-long mini-lessons is included with the original poem.

Consistent use of weekly poems for familiar rereading and word work have contributed to increased reading fluency results for my students on Curriculum Based Measurement (CBM) assessments. Increased fluency has also positively impacted their reading results on Discovery Education and STAR tests.
