25 Just-Right Poems That Target the Top Sight Words Young Readers Need to Know
By Rita Palmer
Teach important sight words with 25 short and playful poems! Each poem targets a key Dolch sight word and includes multiple opportunities for children to practice reading that word—helping them boost word recognition, automaticity, and fluency. Created especially for young learners, the poems feature predictable, rhyming text and supportive illustrations. Includes easy lesson routines, reproducible activities, a cloze version of every poem, and more! Children will love having their very own copies for reading the poems again and again!
Morning Meeting Poetry Minute:
As part of the Morning Meeting routine, let a child select a familiar sight word poem to read. Provide a pointer the child can use to guide the class in reading aloud the poem. Remind children that they can suggest a movement (such as toe-tapping) to go along with the poem they choose!
