What students DON’T enjoy singing and rhythmic poems? Poetry is the perfect way to integrate literacy and science as you are inviting the students to practice reading with you-shared reading! With these fun, rhythmic, songs/poems, students enjoy reading along with the teacher each day as they focus on a different reading skill or strategy.

The poem topics and phonics activities included are:
