This is one of my favorite activities to complete with my kiddos each year. I generally take a week to complete, spending a day on each poem in the book. This is a fun way to review many of the skills that we have been working on throughout the year, including:
- Creating and using a table of contents
- Great for shared reading and to be paired with Thanksgiving themed picture books
- Genre study for poetry
- The importance of illustrations and how they match the text (the boxes on each page allow for a space for the students to become the illustrator for each poem)
- Using inference to develop a deeper meaning of the text
I hope that your students enjoy it as much as my students do every year!
