Grades K-2. Initial Consonants with a Sprinkling of Vowels. 42 poems, two each for most of the consonants, and one each for the less frequently used consonants and the short vowels. By Betsy Franco. Title 1 Approved
Share the rhythm and cadence of poetry and the joy of poetic language with the children in your class. The topics of the 42 poems were selected to reflect a child's world. This book provides a delightful poem for every week of the year while at the same time introducing, teaching, or reviewing all 26 letters of the alphabet. The poems are relevant, lively, touching and fun. Suggestions are given to highlight the particular initial consonant or vowel for each poem, as well as ideas for making the poems personal and interactive. Each poem is provided in two ways: a student copy of the poem which makes a great home connection and easy-to-create poetry strips which will fit into a Desktop Pocket Chart, perfect for individual or small group work.
