This week I am linking up with #Teachermom for another week of the Building Back to School Link-Up. This week I am sharing with you ways that poetry can enhance your language curriculum.
1. Running Records
2. Teaching Fluency
3. Read Alouds (especially on the days when time is tight)
4. Teaching ELA Standards
6. Parts of Speech
The list could go on and on. One the newest ways I have used poetry is in my Literacy Center. I have been able to incorporate many of the common core standards in this center. I wrote each poem used in the center so it would address the standards and skills I feel the students need at that time. I have used both an activity board where every student does each assignment and as a choice board.
I love that poetry allows students to ability to really dissect the word choice and look at the different parts of speech. I have found that most students, especially students with reading difficulty, love poetry. It is shorter, and therefore brings less stress. Students can quickly see the beginning and end.
Below you will find all of the topics used throughout the school year in the Poetry Literacy Centers for the Year.
