I used these two Poems, "I see God in a Rainbow" and "Giving thanks for creation" for my Grade 1/2 split classroom. I would recommend teaching one poem a week. Tips: Read-aloud the poem, shared, reading, get 5 word wall words from the poem, draw a picture of the poem. You can even do art lessons with the Rainbow poem as well by creating rainbows with the students. Also, I had my students circle the word wall words in anything they read so they would practice finding those common words in our classroom. As you can see, opportunities to link subjects and language arts in poems are endless. Enjoy!
