Overview

Regie Routman shares her delightful selection of free verse poems written by first graders that will inspire your second graders to think, I can write poems like this too! Regie provides strategies for using kids' poems as models to guide children to write poems about things they know and care about: learning to skate, disliking asparagus, playing with a best friend, and more. She describes the way she invites children to study the model poem, beginning by asking kids, What do you notice? She shows how she demonstrates the poetry-writing process to children: thinking aloud and drafting poems about her own life, and then collaborating on a poem together before children write on their own. Includes 20 reproducible poems written and illustrated by first graders to share with kids. Perfect for classroom teachers and parents! For use with Grade 1.

I recently bought this book for my first grade class. This book has a great way of introducing poetry to first graders. It is very easy to read and the lessons are very clear. My class enjoyed doing the activities that is associated with poetry. I would recommend this book to any educator who needs to introduce poetry in a fun way for young children to understand. A great resource book to have on in your educator bookcase or collection. 4himkel
