Grades 3-5. Creative Cross-Curricular Poems, & Grammar by Betsy Franco. This book contains 42 poems that are relevant, lively, touching, and thematically appropriate one poem for each week of school, including curriculum-related poems for math, science, social studies. - Title 1 Approved
A wonderful collection of forty-two poems that reflect the world of third to fifth graders. There's one poem for each week of school, including curriculum-related poems for math, science, and social studies. Many of the poems are excellent springboards for discussing values with your students. There's an extra bonus, too! Since grammar plays an important part in students' writing, each poem highlights a particular grammatical rule. The suggestions that accompany each poem ensure that you can enjoy the poetry with your students, while at the same time introducing, teaching, or reviewing relevant grammar skills. The suggestions will also help you integrate the poems into the curriculum. Along with the student poems and suggestions, you get mini-strips for each poem that fit into the Desktop Pocket Chart. With all these tools, individual students can learn from and elaborate on the poems, groups can benefit from the oral language, and you can relax and enjoy your teaching.
