Poetry Folder Detectives
We spend a lot of time on poetry in our classroom. I provides a lot of bang for the buck. I use the weekly poems to "dig out" and review nouns, verbs, word wall words, rhyming words. We have a weekly reading comprehension test using our poems as well. The students pictures above are being "Word Wall Detectives" using magnifying glasses to search for word wall words and highlight them yellow. Since we add new word wall words and new poems to our folder each week, the search never ends right back to the first poems added at the beginning of the year. Each week there are new words to find. This is a great challenge activity for early finishers too. Have fun detectives!
