POEMS POEMS POEMS! This is a HUGE pack of JUST poems for every month of the school year and more!

***NEWLY UPDATED as of March 30/20! I have included a file in this pack with JPGs of each poem for easy access to upload to your secured Google Classroom/D2L homepage. Also included is an activity page for suggestions and ideas on what to do with the poems. Please note: this pack is for 1 (ONE) educator license. NOT TO BE SHARED WITH COLLEAGUES. ONLY POEMS ARE INCLUDED.***

Poems are so important for children! They teach rhyme, repetition, letters and sounds, directionality, and more! I introduce a new poem each week on Monday and students are encouraged to read the poem each morning to each other.

Here is what's included in this pack:

- over 90 poems (divided by month - at least 5 per month) in BOTH color and B&W

- complete printables and instructions for a Rhyme and Chime book for students to take home and read poems with their families

Here is what the poems in each month focus on:

- September: back to school, apples, safety, "I am special"

- October: autumn, pumpkins, Halloween, Thanksgiving, spiders

- November: leaves, fall/autumn, peace, scarecrows

- December: Santa, reindeer, trees, star

- January: new year, winter, snow, snowmen, penguins

- February: Valentine's Day, Groundhog Day, friendship

- March: wind, St. Patrick's Day, spring, kites

- April: Easter, spring, rain, planting

- May: Mother's Day, butterflies, caterpillars, rainbows, flowers

- June: water, summer, sunshine, Father's Day

*BONUS!* I also included 5 poems that teach students about counting (1:1 correspondence, subitizing, cardinality) as well as poems about the Winter Games, colors, Nursery Rhymes

(Every poem has the author's name printed under the title, if known. Many poems are common and well-known (public domain), the author is unknown or written by me.)
