This Christmas resource packet is perfect for helping your students build fluency with fun original poems about Christmas (elf, candy cane, Christmas tree, Santa, and reindeer). I also included sentence writing worksheets so students can practice writing complete sentences. All poems have a sight word/HFW, grammar, and vocabulary activity connected with each poem. For younger students, there are coloring pages that can be used to decorate your room or to use with a project. Incorporate the poems into a thematic poetry folder for the month of December.
Note: I wrote these poems for my own first grade classroom to help with fluency and I will use in our poetry folders. I explicitly chose words that were PERFECT for primary grades.
Use the poems for repeated readings every morning, have students highlight rhyming words, HFW, and key vocabulary words in a small group, or use with literacy centers/work stations.
