Product Description
Shared Reading of poems and songs is a fantastic tool used in primary classrooms to build concepts of print, phonemic awareness, and sight word recognition.

I use this "Gingerbread Man" PowerPoint on my interactive whiteboard during my Gingerbread Unit. On Monday I introduce the new songs for the week/unit. In this unit, I've included the following poems/songs: (I limit to 3 each unit because it's hard for them to memorize any more than that in a 1-2 week time frame)

1. Gingerbread (to the tune of Frere Jacques)
2. 10 Little Gingerkids (to the tune of 10 Little Indians)
3. Run, Run, You Can't Catch Me (to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle)

Every day we track the print as we reread or sing the songs and poems included. The kids love coming up and tracking the print while we sing! By the end of the unit, they kids are pros and have the songs/poems completely memorized.

At the end of the unit, the students color the poetry printables and we add them to their poetry binders. They continue practicing these poems and songs every time they read their poetry journals, such as during buddy reading and independent reading. These are great for building reading fluency!

At the end of the year, the students take home their poetry binder filled with all their poems and songs from kindergarten. It's a great keepsake that families treasure! The parents love hearing them sing the songs or recite the poems!
