We had a great time practicing reading it as a whole and line by line. We started by reading it as a whole. Next, we read it line by line and worked on matching the pictures to improve comprehension. The pictures and words gave us lots of opportunities to practice different language and vocabulary.
Afterwards we worked on the readers that came with it. This gave us an opportunity to practice reading the poem in a different format.
As we read the booklet we colored something on each page according to a verbal direction. To wrap up the activity we went back one final time and spied some sight words.
The poems I will be using in my classroom all month are from Deedee Wills. Here is a link to the bundle I am using from Deedee's store. I highly recommend them.
