Poetry Spelling

Poetry spelling can also be a fun way to include poetry in your lessons. Choose a poem you know your students will like. Select challenging words from the poem for the spelling list. Then create exercises to learn the words. I use a cloze procedure for the test. I also use the poem for a weekly reading fluency test. I just do this a few times a year, usually around holidays.

Here is the one I use for Valentine's Day for my third graders.
