Product Description
Poetry is such a great vehicle to foster a love of reading and writing!
It also gives you the opportunity to teach key literacy skills such as rhyming.

Implementing Poem of the Week in your classroom ensures that you are making time for this fun activity each week, and with this unit, the work is all done for you! Even the pocket chart words are included to just print out and cut apart.

This no prep poetry set contains 100+ pages of poetry activities with a Growth Mindset and Friendship theme. It's perfect for the beginning of the year, but works any time of year to reinforce these important concepts.

There are five poems, each of which have 10+ different activities and printables with engaging and differentiated activities. Some pages have two different versions/levels of supported writing.

---Comprehension Check - Students read and illustrate the poem, underlining the parts of the poem that were used to form the drawing. They are also prompted to write about related topics (accessing prior knowledge/text to self).

--Missing Words - Students finish the line of the poem using the original poem as reference, either on the pocket chart or their own personal version.

--Sequencing - Lines of the poem are mixed up and must be cut up and put back in order using the pocket chart poem as reference. Also makes a great independent literacy center.

--Mini-Books - Students fold twice to create a small book to illustrated and read to a friend.
