Poems are the best way to welcome students to a brand new year! Includes 7 poems in color & b/w and the Golden Rule! Also included are 3 writing activities/responses with 4 different kinds of paper to differentiate for your students and two contracts (for two poems) for the students to sign. I use every single one of these poems at the beginning of the school year!
Poetry and shared reading are a great match to help build reading fluency, word work skills and more! This is a freebie that is part of a larger product of 4 Poems. These poems are great for use with shared reading, Daily 5 Word Work, literacy centers, whole class and small group activities.
