Five Days & Five Ways To Use Poetry With Primary Grade Students


Greetings!

If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I will ALWAYS find TIME to RHYME in Room #2!   I am here today to share the way that I am doing that this winter!


Find time to rhyme and build reading fluency skills at the same time with five ways to use poetry with primary grade students.




Over the 2015 December holiday break, I started composing some short, thematic poems for my
at-risk readers.  My hope was to use them during our Daily 5 partner reading time to build fluency, expression, and confidence. Once I'd written the short verses full of familiar rhyming patterns and sight words, I decided to create a context clue, rhyming, and writing activity for each one.

When I introduced these activities to my second graders, they were a BIG hit!  The one-page poems were less intimidating than partner stories and fit our daily time frame.  Once I'd modeled each day's directions and expectations, most students were able to work with a peer or individually to complete each task.

I've laid out a sample "lesson plan"  using one set of materials from my WINTER POEMS--MITTEN MAGIC pack below. You can see a full preview {HERE}.  The product description and preview for my SNOW POEMS pack can be found {HERE}.
