I have included six poems in this pack with a five day lesson plan for each and a center activity. This repetitive program promotes fluency. My students love poetry this year.
I have included a back to school poem
a poem about crayons
a poem about fall
a poem about pumpkins
a poem about october leaves
a poem about apple trees
Monday: I have students listen- I read the poem for the week and have students model.
Students glue their poem in their notebook. I also send a black and white copy home for parents to reinforce at home. You can also send the plans so parents could reinforce that .
Tuesday-Friday: Students try to recite the poem without looking, while reviewing previous poems. Follow the lesson plan included to teach different features.
We practice a different feature each day and also one vocabulary word. Students also use the colors on the plan with crayons to highlight the feature we are working on.
On Monday, I place the laminated poem strips along with a pocket chart into the work on words center. They practice placing them in order and reciting. I print an extra copy of the poem in as well.
I have included a PDF in color and black and white to project through your promethean board. I have students come up and highlight and underline the words and features as we go.
I also have a color and black and white mini copy of each poem for the students poetry notebook.
You will find the poetry word center strips included
You will also find a 5 day lesson plan as well.
You have the option of having students write the poem in their poetry notebook as well.
