Poetry Friday: Poetry Rocks


Poetry Friday is hosting by Keri Recommends.

I have been in a GLAD  training all week.  It’s been a great week but my brain hurts.  In the morning, we’ve watched demonstration lessons in a first grade classroom.  In the afternoon, we’ve been working on GLAD units of study.  No surprise, mine is on poetry.

Part of the Guided Oral Reading is creating chants.  So this is mine.  In the next few weeks, I will be co-teaching the poetry unit with a second grade teacher.



We just know what we’ve been
We just know what we’ve been told

Poetry is good for the soul
Poetry is good for the soul

Alliteration, repetition too,
Alliteration, repetition too,

Always creates a mood
Always creates a mood

Sound off!  Poetry!
Sound off!  Similes!
1-2-3-4…Poetry Rocks

    • Yes, It was a bit daunting to break down teaching poetry using a Backwards Planning format. But it was good for me.
