Student behavior and emotional regulation are big factors in children's classroom success. My
Character in the Classroom Poetry YEARLY Bundle is intended to serve two purposes: build reading fluency AND spark conversations. The bundle includes 32 original poems and supplementary printables focused on comprehension, character building, and word study. The poems have been thoughtfully written for students in grades 2-5, and each set is intended to last a week.
How to Use this Resource:
The best use of the poems would include practice with repeated reading, highlighter hunts, phrase marking, and with the printables included. Use them with whole group for modeling or for your morning meetings as discussion starters, in guided reading groups, for literacy stations, and any time you are waiting (for buses, before lunch, for library, etc) Perfect for the beginniing of the year as you work on community building too.
