If you’re looking for the perfect ELA activity during the holidays or right after returning from Winter Break, this is all you need! Snowman Poetry comes with a cute snowman poem, reading comprehension activities, and writing extensions. Wrap it up with a craftivity to display student poems. This is ready for you to print and use immediately in your classroom!
Poetry is sometimes the “forgotten genre” in our elementary classrooms. Students need to be exposed to the sight and sound of poetry, as well as taught how to understand the meaning within the lines. Early exposure such as the activities included here, will help your students “get” poetry. And it’s an easy way for you to feel comfortable teaching it, too! I’ve included a handy sheet with teacher suggestions for teaching poetry to elementary students.
Happy Teaching! Martha from “The Owl Spot”
