Help build fluency, concepts of print, phonemic awareness, and comprehension skills with monthly themed poems! These poems can be used as a shared reading, as well as placed in the students’ “I Can Read” or poetry binders! You can write the lyrics on chart paper, display the poem using your document camera or IWB, or use the included word cards inside a pocket chart. The word cards can also be used in your poetry center!
Each poem includes a daily activity! Some of the activities will address concepts of prints, phonemic awareness, and word wall words, as well as other literacy skills. You can use highlighter tape, vis-à-vis markers, pointers, word-swatters, etc. to complete the activities. These are the same activities that the students will complete at home for homework in their "I Can Read" binder!

I have been a Kindergarten Teacher for eleven years, with three years in a combined Young Five's / Kindergarten classroom! During this time, I helped initiate the Student Council, organized the talent show, worked on the accreditation process, provided district professional development, as well as served on our School Improvement Team. As I share my own passion for learning, it is my hope to instill this love of learning in my students and create students who are lifelong learners!
