    This is a BUNDLE of 20 short poems, songs or chants that teach social skills!

    There are 20 weeks of poems, posters and writing activities to match each poem and reinforce the important social skills being discussed.

    (A free bonus poem has been added, so now 21 in total - over 420 pages!)

    This no-prep resource explores a new social skill each week, while still practicing reading, writing, comprehension, vocabulary, and more!

    There are enough activities in each poem pack to last two weeks (would take 42 weeks total to complete), or you can pick and choose to differentiate from the 20 page pack for each poem and complete it in half the time. It's completely up to you!

    The social skills topics include self-regulation, conflict resolution, personal space, lining up, and making good choices. Some poems may be chanted at the start of your lessons to ensure students are ready to listen. Others are perfect for starting a discussion about self-regulation or personal space.

    They are meant to be useful well beyond one week of literacy study as some of the songs and chants may become part of your daily routine and management system to assist with transitions and attention!

    Each poem is saved as its own file of 20+ printable pages for easy organization.

    Just pick your poem, choose the activities, and you're done!

    By choosing the bundle, you will save 50% off the individual poem packs!

    There are enough activities to use for one or two weeks depending on how much literacy time you can dedicate to poetry, or you may pick and choose to differentiate. If you don't have time for poetry each of the five days, you can also use them in your literacy or writing center! Activities repeat in each poem pack, so students will quickly become able to complete them independently in writing centers.

    Here's the breakdown of activities organized through the week:


    Introduce the poem with a color poster and a student copy for their Poetry Folder. that they can use to track as they read. Also included: larger version of the poem for sorting and ordering on a table or a small pocket chart - just print and laminate! For literacy, there is a visualization activity (drawing about the poem) and a comic activity (students fill the speech bubbles of characters from the poem). These are great for reluctant or emergent writers! (5 activities)


    Review the poem again, then choose between different printing options: Trace the poem with dotted letters, print the poem with reference right on the page, or finish the ending of each line in the poem. (3 activities)


    Use context clues and reference the poster to find missing words in the poem. There are two choices: fill in missing words using a word bank, or cut and glue the missing words. (2 activities)


    Cut the poem apart, mix up, and glue back in the correct order.

    Activities with comprehension questions.

    Activities to study the grammar and vocabulary used in the poem. (3 activities)


    Writing activities that involve making personal connections to the poem.

    Activity to review vocabulary and meaning in the poem.

    1-page Mini-Book to demonstrate understanding of the poem by illustrating the words on each page. (3 activities)
