These phonics poems are the perfect way to have your students practice fluency! I love to put these poems in a poetry folder and each week we have a new word family or phonics skill to learn.

This website is a poetry blog by Erin Hanson. The first time I read her poetry I was stuck at the computer for hours (literally). Her work touches so many deep parts of my soul, I am grateful for her even though i have never met her.
