About this product
- DescriptionThe poems in this personal poetry collection have taken into account themes and topics for first graders: poems about me; school, community, and our country; animal poems; math poems; science poems about life cycles and much more! The poems in the collection are from four to fifteen lines long. Those within the beginning themes are simpler, including many high frequency words that children can use as anchors and a great deal of repetition to make the poems more predictable. Reading a poem in many forms makes it fun for first graders to practice and develop their reading skills. For individual, group, and whole class work, we've provided the tools you need. Each poem has a student poem page with an engaging illustration. This enables children to create their own personal poetry collections. For group and center work, we've provided strips that fit into the Desktop Pocket Chart. We've also included instructions for enlarging the poems for use as poetry posters.
