I am a bit behind this week. I just can not keep up with everything going on at school and at home. Last week my class did a poem about trees. I structure all my poems the same. I have a copy I introduce to the children on Monday.
We review all the basic skills that the children will encounter on the homework sheet and review rhyming and sight words. I use lots of colorful highlighters. Then the children illustrate the poem and put it in a 3 prong poetry notebook.
The children take the homework page home for review.
I always put a copy in the poetry baskets for reading enjoyment in the reading center. The kids are always surprised to find the poems in there. I don't know why. They love to read them to their 4th grade buddies.
