Every week my students study a new poem during our shared reading time. Often our poems are based on the current season or holidays. To get as much out of our (10 minute!) shared reading time as possible, I make a detailed lesson plan that hits all the different skills areas I want my students to work on. Included in this packet are 4 poems (large and small size) and 4 weekly shared reading lesson plans.
I use this collection of poems in March when we focus on Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick’s Day, March wind (lion & lamb), and getting ready for spring.
