Okay, this is gonna sound dumb, I know. Years ago, I made up some poetry centers. I have laminated copies of different poems...all color and cutesy. I found this center in a rubbermaid tote recently. However, I do not have ANY idea what I was planning to do with them!!! The folder says, "Poetry Center" so I know I was going to have a file folder center with them...Haha! But other than that, I have NO idea WHAT the center was gonna be. Anyone have any ideas how I can use what I have? It's for 1st grade, by the way. THANK YOU!!

You could have them read them with a partner for fluency.
You could give them wipe off markers and have them look for high frequency words or spelling words.

BTW, this sounds like something I would do.. make a center, put it away for later in the year and then completely forget about it...

I am sure others will pop in with different ideas and you will have a great center.

What grade level? In addition to high frequency words you could have the kids identify nouns, proper nouns, adjectives, adverbs etc.

Where did you find your poems. I plan on doing something similar.

For poetry workstations/centers students:

-have to read the poem,
-have poem written out on sentence strips cut up and mixed up they then have to put the poem back in order
-write down rhyming words or circle them.
-Answer comprehension questions or questions about more rhyming words
-practice reading the poem to memorize part all all of it to recite in front of class
-create a similar type of poem, - they can use the same rhyming words for their own poem, or they can use the same theme as the poem and different rhyming words.

Hope this helps.

I used to write the poem on sentence strips and cut it apart. Then, I would have them practice reading the poem fluently with a paertner, put the poem together in correct sequence on a pocket chart, write the poem in their neatest handwriting, and then draw a visuzliation. They kept it all in a notebook and could go back and act out or practice reading the older poems.
