A Poem a Day: 180 Thematic Poems and Activities That Teach and Delight All Year Long. Grades K-3.
Moore, Helen H.
This collection of 180 poems was assembled with classroom needs in mind. Intended to delight students every day, the collection's poems span the school year from September to summertime. Its introduction gives teachers before-, during-, and after-reading ideas. Sections in the collection include: Me and My World, Primary Concepts, Seasons and Special Days, Animals, Science and Nature, and Just for Fun. Every page in the collection has a picture by a noted children's illustrator--and every poem has an activity or a picture book link to make the poem pack more learning punch. Ideas for student activities before, during, and after reading the poems are suggested. Sharing, snowfall, safety, sneezing, sibling rivalry, hibernation, honeybees, whales, rainbows, and dinosaurs are among some of the subjects of the poems. (CR)
