Poetry Party A Collection of Poems to Tickle Your Tonsils for December
The Poetry Party is a wonderful opportunity for your students to play with words. The poems are an extensive collection specific to the theme and have a variety of length and complexities of text.
The poems are all typed with varying easy to read fonts as large as will fit in the poets' formats onto the page. Let the words wash over students as they grasp the rhythm, rhyme, word choice and enjoy the sensory experience of this anthology.
The poems can be posted, projected, or printed on color paper and put in a binder for the month for students to choose to read independently, in a pair, in a choral group or memorize to earn credits for extra effort. All of these methods will support literacy in your room: fluency, word flow, pacing, cadence, the list goes on…
For poem recitation from memorization--if you have parent volunteers who listen to students read, this is a great use of doubling your team power as two or more of you can listen to students show off their newly memorized poem. Limit the time to about thirty minutes, as it can get a little loud as the excitement builds. Set a timer and warn them a few minutes before the end that the time is closing. Try to do it at least once a week if time permits.
The extra effort slips are also included and can be incorporated into your class economy system.
