Do you teach poetry in your primary classroom? We read and learn a poem of the week and complete tons of activities to help build fluency and word knowledge. Children love to read these weekly poems and yours will too! Check out this post and grab a few FREE poems for your classroom.
Tonight, my husband shared with me a poem that he found on Facebook. A poem that made me cry. A poem that gave me a renewed joy for the little things in life. I hope you'll enjoy it too! Danniel J. Lennax is the author of this heartfelt poem.
Use a poem of the week for shared reading and then add it to poetry folders so students can access them during read to self or read to someone. Great follow up activities for word work, writing, and reading comprehension.
