Spring Poems

I have a group of kinders/first graders for an hour every afternoon, and for the past few months we've started out every class with the poem of the week. I've been using LessonPix to generate images for a lot of the words to help the kids read along.  On Monday I usually read the whole poem through, and then ask the kids to pick out any sight words they know. Then I have them echo read the poem line by line.  Usually they are very eager to read the poem themselves! I try to connect the poem to some other element we are learning that week.  I didn't make up any of these poems myself-- most of them I found on Pinterest. You can check out my board of poems here.
