Included are 12 ORIGINAL poems, created by myself, to cover the month of March. Themes of the poems include St. Patrick's Day/leprechauns, kites, March weather, Spring Monsters, March, lion and lamb weather, rabbits/bunnies, Easter, Read Across America and spring.
Poems have been sized so that, once cut around the border, they will fit in a spiral notebook. My 3rd grade students have a poetry notebook and each week we add a poem or two to it and then they can use them during our Daily 5 block. I have found that it is a fun way to practice reading aloud, thus improving student's reading fluency!
