Poetry is a great way to start a new school year! This packet contains six original poems and activites that focus on back to school jitters, friendship, positive reinforcement, and school rules. (or what happens when there aren't any!)
These poems are perfect for the beginning of the year and can also be used as anchor pieces througout the year.
The poems themselves are a good tool for fluency practice and as a read aloud. The activities contain pages that focus on poem structure-
lines, stanzas, rhyme and pattern. There are also pages that focus on comprehension by using the text evidence from the poem to answer questions. Finally, the poems have a writing component to make conncections through a draw and write or composing a poem.
