This packet contains printables and resources to set up an easy to manage poetry center within your classroom. You can include poetry that is specific to a theme or topic, or you can create a general center with poetry books. I place cards in a pocket chart and move the task markers each week to provide students with several tasks to complete in their poetry journals.
Labels: Labels are included for a pocket chart for the task cards, poetry journal containers, poetry buddies, and general poetry books.
Task Cards: The task cards span comprehension, phonics, and fluency tasks that address elements of the National CORE Curriculum. There are also blank cards included to create your own tasks. Just print, laminate, and cut apart for an instant center! (For a smaller pocket chart, print 2 sheets to a page to make smaller cards.)
Task Markers: Three different task markers are included to mark assigned tasks in the pocket chart.
