This packet includes over 20 POEMS with word count. Students will improve their reading fluency. Included are charts, explicit instructions for charting repeat reads, and a homework option too. This strategy is considered an RTI and is a fun way to increase reading fluency. POEMS are by Shel Silverstein, Ken Nesbit, and other fun loving authors. These entertaining poems were a big hit for my students. POEMS ARE GENERALLY AT A 4th and 5th GRADE READING LEVEL.
