Perfect Poems: A Collection of Back-to-School Poetry
Each of the poems in this resource deals with a different aspect of the start-of-school season. See Full Product Description.
Teachers might choose one to read to the class each day during the first week. The poems have different rhyming patterns that might be pointed out to the children. Encourage them to listen for words that rhyme (phonemic awareness). If you hand out copies of the poems, have children look at the spelling of rhyming words (phonics).
