This resource includes 13 children's poems and each poem has between 3-4 suggested activities (50 in total!) that follow which I have created. The suggested activities are intended to further explore the poems through various means such as various forms of art, drama, creative writing, research, constructing their own poems, critical thinking, etc. There is a wide range of disciplines explored, and each poem/activity has suggested grade levels, ranging from K-8.

I have used this resource as a means to study poetry and interconnect our other subject areas, but I have also used various activities/poems as a last minute resort when plans change ever so quickly in the classroom! I have also used this as a substitute teacher on the go, never knowing what you may get into.
I hope you and your students enjoy this package!
