Poetry is an excellent way to teach fluency, parts of speech, punctuation, rhythm, creating mental images, making connections and just fun reading! In this packet are focus poems for every month and holiday. All of the poems are in color and black and white! You can incorporate all of these poems into your poetry center and interactive notebooks.
A lesson plan is included to provide instructions on how to teach the poems and there are photos to show how to make the poems and glue them into the poetry notebooks. Also included are acrostic poems for each month and holiday using themes for teaching the vocabulary. These are also in color and black and white as well. Your students will be engaged in fun and purposeful poetry and that will help build their fluency, comprehension and connections.
