Adding poetry to your daily routine is simple! Bring on Spring and add poetry in the classroom with these fun, spring poems! Your class will love to sing along with these shared readings.
It’s officially Spring! We’ve had a couple of 60-degree days and I am SO HAPPY about it! I am sure it will snow again here in Colorado, but I know we are getting closer to warm weather. So, welcome Spring in your classroom with these fun, spring poems!
I loved using poetry in my classroom. I would introduce the poem at the beginning of each week as a shared reading and we would work with it all week long. There is a 5 day fluency plan for each poem to keep the poetry activities going all week. After the week, add your poems to a poetry center for students to enjoy again and again.
Each poem comes with colorful pictures and interactive activities for students.
Student response pages and emergent readers, too!
While exploring their emergent reader, students can identify rhyming words, high-frequency words, capital letters, punctuation, etc!
Interactive Poetry Notebook
Increase your students’ level of engagement with interactive poetry notebooks! And yes, you CAN do this in Kindergarten! Your students will build fluency, phonemic awareness, phonics, and word knowledge all within a few minutes a day.
Poetry Music and Videos
Music and Videos… what?? Yes! I teamed up with Miss Jenny and Edutunes to put my monthly poetry stations to music. Your students will be moving and grooving as they sing along with these spring poems. Just by scanning a QR code, students can independently listen to the poems. What a great addition to your poetry station!
I organized all the poems into a binder for easy use! After teaching students how to scan QR codes, they will be completely independent at this center and they LOVE it!
Check out a preview of the music and videos for February.
