Poetry notebooks serve many purposes in the curriculum. They
help develop pre-reading skills such as phonemic awareness, sight
word recognition, and comprehension.
Have children add a new poem once or twice a week to their poetry folders.
Begin by putting a poem on a pocket chart for a week or so. Read the
poem everyday. After a couple of days, give the children
individual word cards to match with words in the poem.
