The FREE November A Poem Each Week has arrived! Poetry is great for read alouds and introducing and reviewing standards. This month we are looking at four Thanksgiving poems by Jack Prelutsky.
Ate Too Much
Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven
The First Thanksgiving
These discussions and activities give students a chance to connect the poems to themselves and the world around them. Students also make connections to healthy choices, graphing weather, and learning the history of the First Thanksgiving.
Each of these poems can be easily found in your school or local library. Many of these poems used can be found with an online search as well. If you have trouble locating these poems, please ask your school library media specialist for assistance. Use these FREE resources to get your students talking about poetry. These are great fillers for read alouds, end-of-the day, and winding down from recess. Great for K-5th grade.
If you like these please check out the September and October editions. And I’d love to get some feedback on if these suggested poems are encouraging your students to read more poetry!
