Simply Poetic

Why not introduce your kiddos to poetry.  Weekly I use this bulletin board to display the poem of the week.

During literacy centers, my kiddos visit the poetry center.  In their poetry journal they have to complete 3 jobs:
1.  Glue down poem.
2.  Find words in poem.
3.  Draw a picture to go with the poem.

First month of school, my kiddos learned their color words.  At this center they circled the color words in this poem.

Each day during morning meeting, we practice the poem by reciting, singing, or using hand movements.  We use highlighting tape to find our weekly sight words and my little detectives always find rhyming words :)
