This growing bundle includes giggle-worthy original poems for short and long vowels, variant vowels, consonant digraphs and blends PLUS corresponding word work (word sorts), fluency practice (formatted for timed, repeated readings and performances), word wall cards and best tips for implementation= NO PREP INTEGRATION at its best (see note in parentheses below). NOTE: This is a growing bundle that began as simply phonics poetry. I decided to include the corresponding word and fluency work and am CURRENTLY WORKING TO ADD IT ALL. THUS, the file is NOT DONE! It is super cheap now, but as I add resources, the price will increase. So, as you wait, keep in mind, you're getting a great deal! You are you welcome to contact me with requests for specific blends or other. I love writing poems and using them in my classroom!
(Remember, the brain learns best when what we are teaching is connected. This product helps you integrate shared, repeated and independent reading with phonics and fluency instruction. Put the Word Wall cards on a foam display board, and you now have a constant scaffold for students who need more repetition as they move toward automaticity. Here's to integration!)
I know you probably already have poems for teaching phonics, after all, they are so fun and effective to use. But, you can always use more! The more varied contexts students are exposed to, the more they are likely to become automatic with spelling-sound patterns. The long vowel poems contain the most frequent spelling patterns for the vowel--GREAT for teaching, reinforcing and using as a stimulus to hunt for other words with these common patterns. Plus, as you know, reading and rereading these types of poems does wonders for students' reading fluency. Now, with the added fluency practice, you can do some of this work in class and/or send it home for reinforcement!
I also included my favorite "Best Tips" for classroom use (I will be adding much more to this section!).
Get in on the bundle now, while the price is low! And, enjoy these fun rhymes with your students--guaranteed to get some giggles!
