Q: Why are there two sets of shared reading poems?

A: I had many requests from school districts wishing to use my shared reading poems in both kindergarten and first grade. So I sat down and created a second set of poems.

Q: What is the difference between the First Edition of shared reading poems and the Second Edition of shared reading poems?

A: To start with, the poems are different.

Set 1 was written with kindergarten in mind although numerous first grade classrooms enjoy the first edition. The word work activities that are in set 1 are kindergarten skills.

Set 2 was written with both first grade and kindergarten in mind. In Set 2 there are 2 sets of word work options. One set has kindergarten skills and the other has first grade skills.

Q: Are these shared reading poems set to a tune!

A: YES! Brain research tells us that singing activates other areas of the brain, so virtually every shared reading poem is set to a tune. This increases fluency! (psst… and it is fun!)

Q: Do you have a recorded version of the songs?

A: I am thrilled to tell you that we have recorded MP3 and MP4 music files to go along with these poems. These music files are wonderful for your students to sing-a-long with. They also make a fantastic fluency center They are available with this additional purchase:

Q: Do you have an interactive notebook version?

A: If your class uses interactive notebooks, this interactive journal resource is also available for an additional purchase:

Q: Is there a place where I can buy the print files, the recorded files, and the interactive notebook all together?

A: Yes, you can find the MEGA BUNDLE by clicking:
