Poetry in Elementary Blog Hop



Is it really almost April?  It sure doesnt feel like spring yet, but I will just keep thinking warm thoughts!  To celebrate National Poetry Month I am participating in a blog hop hosted by Line Upon Learning.

As a kindergarten teacher, I like to use a new poem every week to introduce and review basic concepts with my kiddos.  The poem that I choose matches the season, holiday, theme, or topic that we are learning about.  Each day we work on the poem during our morning meeting either on chart paper, or this year I started to post it on the interactive whiteboard and save our work each day. My students also complete a task on the same poem in their poetry binder. We practice a variety of activities with the poems depending on the skills that we are currently working on. 

 I created a pack of 30 task cards that  cover a variety of activities I use with different poems. I'd like to share them with you for FREE for the last few days of March only as a thank you just for stopping by my blog today! You can find them here. Be sure to grab them before April 1st when I will post them in my TPT store!





You can find the poems I use in my Poetry Binders here:




And I'm offering the chance to win my poetry binder to 2 lucky winners this week as well! Just enter below.
