Great Poetry Race

Thought I would share in case you haven't heard of it. Each Monday you give a student a poem, read it with them a few times, and put it away. Students take the poem home and read it to as many people as they can. Each person they read it to signs the back. At the end of the week, you see who got the most signatures, you can have each student set a goal and see if they can meet that goal, or you can set a class goal. The kids love it and it helps build their fluency and vocabulary. You can use any poem you like and on the back I copy the signature sheet. Here is a copy in case you decide you want to use it!
