I would have them paste the poem into notebooks rather than having them copy the poem. First graders are still developing fine motor skills and their hands get tired pretty quickly. If it is a shorter poem, you could have them copy it, but what is the purpose?
I am using poetry binders, so they will just put the poem in their binder, circle word wall words, end marks, capital letters, rhyming words, etc. They will then illustrate the poem on the back. If time, they can recontruct it in the pocket chart and read it to or with their center partner. Their poetry binders will stay in their book boxes so they can also read them during reader's workshop.
