This huge bundle is full of poetry goodness! There are over 120 original poems and a handful of acrostic poem templates so your budding poets can create their own! Each month contains 10-12 poems. Poems are thematic for each month and topics include holidays, animals, seasons and tons MORE!
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. I introduce the poems on Monday, students glue them in their notebook and then they can use them during our Daily 5 block the rest of the week. I also have students bring their notebooks with them during guided reading time so I can quickly listen to how their reading fluency is progressing. I have found that it is a fun way to practice reading aloud, thus improving student's reading fluency! They love practicing them individually and even more during shared reading time!!
Each poem set is for individual sale in my store, but bundled together, you are saving 20%!
