I just finished my ABC Poetry packet that I will be using at the beginning of the school year.
We always review the first couple of weeks using Smart Start from our Treasures reading series. Most of the time, the students move through it pretty quickly because it's all review from Kindergarten. I'm always looking for things to fill our 90 minute reading block those first couple of weeks. I will use this ABC Poetry packet during that time. I think this would also be great for Pre-K or Kindergarten teachers to use as they introduce each letter. The packet includes a short poem to go along with each letter of the alphabet. Each poem is printed in color as well as a black and white version with traceable words to practice handwriting skills. Each poem also has a blank page so students can write the poem themselves. Click here to download the sample below.
I think I will send home the blank page along with the handwriting page they will complete in class. The students can do the blank page as homework as well as reading the poem to someone at home. You could also use the blank page and have students write their own poems or sentences about the picture.
The packet also includes a color and a black and white alphabet chart. You can also download the charts for FREE by clicking on the picture below.
