This is an interactive flipchart for Activinspire. This poem teaches about parts of the plant and will help students develop decoding skills, comprehension skills, and fluency skills. This flipchart includes different activities to do throughout the week. Here is how I use the poem in my classroom:
Monday: Introduce the poem by reading it to your class and explaining it.
Tuesday: Echo read the poem with the class and then label the parts of a plant.
Wednesday: Read the poem with the class and then find the rhyming words.
Thursday: As you read the poem figure out the missing words. Then you can unscramble words from the poem.
Friday: Students read the poem and then find the "power words." You can also print out the poem and give it to students to glue in a poetry folder.
(A printable version of the poem is included.)
Each activity comes with directions. When you are navigating through the flipchart your will see an image of a post-it note in the top right corner. Click on the post-it note and directions for the page will appear.
