Spring is Here Poetry Hop




Happy spring?! The day I was working on this, April 8, it rained, sleeted, hailed AND snowed on my way home from work. But I do hear its spring! And I am thrilled to be together with some amazing bloggers for a Spring is Here Poetry Blog Hop! April is Poetry Month and we are coming at you with some terrific ideas and freebies for poetry reading and writing!

I love to teach poetry. For many years, after New Year's I would read all the poems I could get my hands on- Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, Bruce Lansky, poem collections, classics, nursery rhymes etc. Then we would get to writing! I would have my class writing cinquains, pyramid poems, rhyming couplets, haikus and more! Thens we would invite all the families in and  make the poems they wrote into books. This year I am so happy I decided, because of all the snow days, to move all the poetry to after February break.  I am defnitely keeping it this way next year! It is so nice to wrap it all up during Poetry Month!

I have a fun freebie for you for Poetry Month. I have been busy working on a big poetry product. It's not ready yet, but you can get a free sneak peek with my Pyramid Poetry product! Your students can learn how to write their own fun pyramid poems with it! I just recommend for younger student to brainstorm some adverbs for the poems. My second graders and I did it together and then it was easy peasy for them to write the rest of the poems independently. Click on any image below or here to pick up the freebie from my Teachers Pay Teachers store! Check out my Teachers Notebook Shop for other fun products!



A few sneak peek pages! There is also one more page included in the freebie not shown here.



Now, hop on over to the amazing Jen Jones' blog, Hello Literacy and check out her freebie. She has a great poetry product that will help your students improve their reading fluency.


Thanks to these terrific creators for providing the fonts and graphics for our blog hop!
