Does any have any suggestions of specific poems to teach with Grammar with?

This is my first year and my asst. principal suggested this as a great tool to use with Shared Reading.

There is actually a Scholastic book titled "Teaching Grammar Through Poetry". It includes poems, lessons and lesson extensions for different areas of grammars. I bought it a few weeks ago and haven't gotten a chance to use it yet, but I definitely think it is a great resource and something you could use. Try googling it and see what comes up!

Mrs. Renz's website has an awesome poetry unit that i pull grammar out of. They are more kid created poems but it works.
