If you are a kindergarten teacher, this is a MUST HAVE yearly bundle. It includes 38 SEASONAL POETRY SETS (10 pages each) for the time of year between August and June. All of the poems are intended to go with units you typically teach. It is best for students who are needing help with connecting spoken word to print. Teachers model with a projection of the poem on a Smartboard, use the poem on sentence strips with small groups, or the PDF with individual students who are working with tutors.
This yearly bundle has been combined with an Animals A to Z COW bundle and a Nursery Rhymes bundle to form the Mega Bundle with ~80 poetry sets formatted just like the turkey poem in the preview.
Each poetry set comes with teaching posters, the poem on sentence strips with and without touchpoints, a touchpoint grid for use for those who have trouble connecting speech to symbols, the poems in book form, word cards for lessons and words in isolation, and the poem in page form for creating a poetry anthology for repeated reading throughout the year.
HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE:
1) the teachers models with a projection of the teaching posters on a smartboard.
2) Once students have memorized the poem, they continue working on tracking and reading the poem.
3) In small groups, practice words in isolation, constructing sentences, identifying sightwords and beginning sounds, rhyming words, reading punctuation, tracking, and matching print.
4) Move it to a literacy station for those who are ready to practice on their own or with an assistant.
The poems work well for repeated reading with parent volunteers, for sight word hunts, for letter recognition, picture clues, and so much more.
*38* poems in all to provide you with COW work all year long.
bundle includes a poem for each week. Repetition is the key to
developing COW, so practice daily is important. Pull out your favorite
pointers, and let your kids be teacher for the day. For a detailed look,
be sure to check out the preview provided.
