This Thanksgiving resource packet is perfect for helping your students build fluency with fun poems about Thanksgiving. There are 4 original poems with CUTE Thanksgiving graphics! I also included sentence writing worksheets, grammar and phonic skills that relate to each poem. Engaging activities to highlight each poem and extra practice with each poem. For younger students, there are coloring pages that can be used to decorate your room or to use with a project. Incorporate the poems into a thematic poetry folder for the month of November.
Note: I wrote these poems for my own first grade classroom to help with fluency and for small groups in our literacy block. I explicitly chose words that were PERFECT for my classroom and they could easily be used to differentiate for advanced students as well.
Use the poems for repeated readings every morning, have students highlight rhyming words, punctuation, phonic skills you are working on, and key vocabulary words in a small group, or use with literacy centers/work stations.
