This poem is the perfect accompaniment for the Classroom Reading Tree! I like to recite this poem with my students, it’s like taking a little academic pledge. Having a Reading Tree in the classroom is such an easy, fun way to encourage children to read. Together you and your students can set a goal as to how many books you want to read and the tree is a great visual reminder. Together the poem and tree make a wonderful interactive resource, as well as a means to display class participation. Anyone walking in your classroom will know that your class is one that loves to read!
