Poetry Throughout The Year

Start looking for poems that can be used with your literature, math, science and social studies units. When it is used more often and makes connections with the other subjects I think it is more meaningful.

Poems make a great introduction to a topic or a conclusion to a lesson.

I also like to choose fun poems to choral read as a class each day for a week. Then on Friday they each read the poem to me for a fluency grade.
I use the attached rubric that came from another PT member some time ago.

I like this website for poetry forms. They make writing poetry easy!
