Spring Poem: An original spring poem for shared reading with shared reading activities for every day of the week.
Shared Reading is one component of a balanced primary reading program (guided reading, shared reading, reading writing connection, home reading program, independent reading and read aloud and respond).
This packet includes a Spring Poem and several related activities:
Monday - play guess the covered word as students use decoding and comprehension strategies to guess the hidden word.
Tuesday - Cut and rearrange the lines into the correct order. Play "Vacation Time" - a phoneme segmenting activity.
Wednesday - fill in the missing sight words in the poem - use clues from the poem and rhyming words to help with spelling.
Thursday - Making words activity with a focus on r-controlled vowels.
Friday - Copy of the original poem to add to their reading folders. (Folders they keep all their shared reading poems in to practice all year long!)
There is very little prep needed for using this Shared Reading packet. Just print and go! I dedicate 15 minutes each morning for our shared reading activity. There is a 15 minute activity in this package for each day of the week. There is consistency and routine built in to these packets to help keep your classroom running smoothly! I find that our shared reading time is the best time of our day. I hope you do too!
I am adding weekly shared reading packets as I develop them for use in my own classroom so please visit my store, Mrs. Hanley's Helpers to get more!
