Do you need a fun and creative way for your students to work on reading fluency? These cut apart poems are perfect. You will provide the students with the mixed up poetry strips. They have to keep rereading the poem over and over again to figure out the correct order. Poems are a great way to work on expression and rhythm while reading as well.

What does this product include?

This includes 20 rhyming poems.

Each poem includes:

  • A color version
  • A black and white version
  • Mixed up sentence strips
  • Matching sheet for gluing on final poem

Who is this product geared towards?

This particular packet is geared towards 1st grade, but could possibly be used in a kindergarten or 2nd grade classroom.

How do I use this product in my classroom?

These poems are perfect for whole group, small group, or during an independent fluency center. I typically just print these out and have students glue their strips down on their papers, but you could also laminate the strips to reuse over and over again at a center.
