Just in time for the month of April! Students will love mixing, fixing and reading familiar poems. Present them during Shared Reading over several days so students are familiar with them. From there, there are many possibilities: reinforcing high frequency words, teaching envisioning, identifying rhyming words, using poems as mentor texts for a poetry unit, practicing fluency, and more.
An awesome whole class activity or literacy center. Post the correct version on the ELMO, Smart Board or Easel and let students use their reading skills to cut up the mixed up lines and put them in order. They can even add their own illustrations!
This pack includes the correct and "mixed up" versions of 5 poems:
I Have a Secret Dragon by Jack Prelutsky
The Pencil Sharpener by Zoe Ryder White
Who Has Seen the Wind? by Christina G. Rossetti
Row Your Boat
The Little Rain Cloud
I made an effort to include the names of the poets/authors when possible. If I am missing a name I should be listing please contact me!
