April is National Poetry Month and is also known for those April Showers. I put together this ELA CCSS Aligned poetry unit about Rain. There are 6 original poems and writing activities for Grades 1-2. There are different poetry forms such as a Cinquain and Haiku for students to read and write. A Haiku Raindrop Craftivity is also included. It is an easy no prep packet with instructions included. Great for Substitutes, Morning Work, and Literacy Centers.
