One of my goals for this upcoming school year is to consistently do poetry every week in my class.
This is how I plan for poetry in my class:
Monday: Read the poem together with the teacher, enjoy the poetry and place poem in poetry folder
Tuesday: Student read the poem together, highlight any sight words in the poetry folder
Wednesday: Have a few volunteers read the poem
Thursday: Have students buddy read the poem together
Friday: Have students read to a parent volunteer to earn a extra turn at homeworkoply
I also wanted to get excited about doing a poetry folder so I made this Pirate Poetry cover. Hopefully some of you can use this in your class. Click on the picture to get the cover in google docs.
I am also going to be compiling some poems to use in my poetry notebook. Look for back to school poetry for August and more themed poems for other months!
