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!
This poem about the last day of school is from The Poem Farm, Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's blog full of hundreds of poems, audio clips of poems, mini lessons, and poetry ideas for home and classroom - www.poemfarm.amylv.com
