One of the things I like to do on the first day of school is read fun poetry to my students. It's important to incorporate poems throughout instruction and this year I would like to make it a point to focus on a poem a week. In this post, I'd like to share two great poems to read the first day of school or even send the poems to your students before school starts, if possible, and then go over them on the first day of class. If you like these poems, just click on them so you can download them for FREE via my Teacher's Notebook shop.
Hope you like these poems. I know I've seen them around before so it's nice to be able to share them again. What types of poems do you like to share with your students during the first week of school? See you next time!
