Poetry Notebooks

When you give children copies of the poems you have learned for the month (week, unit, etc...), do you put them in a poetry notebook or folder that stays at school or do you put them in one that the children keep at home? I have been putting them in binders at the end of the month for the children to take home to practice...but I'm questioning that practice. I don't feel like I can be sure they really are reading these with an adult, unless I add some kind of recording sheet where they write down who they read with and what poems they read. I'm leaning toward having them keep the binders at school so they can practice during independent reading. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I like the recording sheet idea. Is it a possiblity to have 2 copies: one for home and school? Could you use the Great Poetry Race idea that is lower down in the Carnation Room?

My first grade son's teacher purchased a binder and that is where they collect the poems that they read at school. This binder comes home every Friday for the students to practice reading at home. There is a simple cover sheet explaining the rationale and a place for the parent to sign. No minutes, no titles, just a place to sign that the child had read the poem. My sons reads to me the whole book! But a child could opt to read a few of the most recent poem too.
I think the simpler the better.

Beagles,
Could you (or someone) briefly explain the rationale for the poetry readings? Is it simply a exercise in repeated readings for practice in fluency? Of course, I understand that an appreciation for the genre is important. What does the rationale say in your son's binder?

Happy Thanksgiving!
