Welcome to my first FREEBIE FRIDAY. I found this idea on Pinterest last week, several blog’s were linking up and sharing. I thought this was a great idea, that is the main reason I blog, I enjoy exchanging ideas with other teachers for free.
This week I am sharing a poem I did with my students the last week of First Grade.
It is from the book, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You.
I am trying to buy the additional copies of the book every change I get. I think I have 6 copies now.
I introduced the poem to the children on Monday. They LOVED it. They colored the mice and added it to their poetry notebooks. Later I read more poems from the book as well. That is all I needed to do and they were off reading for the week. There are several other books similar to this as well. I showed the first graders where they could find the basket with the poem books.
|This was a favorite among the boys.|
They enjoyed buddy reading with their friends all week. They just loved the books. I don't think I had to remind anyone to read. They were all buddy reading! Amazing!
