These poems are great for a poetry center as you introduce each letter. There are many ways you could implement this but here is how I utilize the product:
Introduce the letter and show students how to highlight the focus letter. After they do that, they cut out the poem (they cut on the dotted lines) and glue it into their Poetry or Interactive Notebook. I then have the students cut out the pictures that start with the focus letter to color, cut, and glue on the opposite page. As the year progresses, you can also have them highlight any sight words or draw any additional pictures for that focus letter.
**Letter X has two poems-one for beginning sound X and one for ending sound X; also you can sing the poem to the tune “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.
