I LOVE the book by Paul Fleischman "Joyful Noise; Poems for Two Voices". It is a poetry book with an insect theme. Each poem is read by two people in chorus. The insects do wonderful things like: leap, swirl, swerve, launch, leap-frog, vault... This is a fantastic book to work on fluency, verbs, and poetry all at once. It's my favorite poetry book. Kids love to recite the poems in pairs. It's lots of fun.

I'm starting verbs next week as well. I found this poem, don't know if it will help you. I was thinking of having them each come up with another verb stanza.

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know of a poem on action verbs. I'm being observed next week and would love to introduce the lesson with a poem, but can't seem to fine one. Thanks for any help!
