One of the items that I got done today was my poem booklets for the entire year. I just threw the masters into the copier, selected back to back copying, and made 30 booklets. Of course, I am praying that I don't have 30 kids, but I am playing it safe. Once they were copied, I brought them home. I laminated the covers for them, binded them, and they are ready to take back to school tomorrow. I love putting things on my "finished" shelf.
We just put our poem booklet on TPT for the first time. I have used a poem booklet for several years. We work on poems throughout the week. Then we read the poem, butter popcorn words with our highlighters, and then find hunks/chunks. Once we are done, the students illustrate the poem.

Poem and Song Collection For An Entire Year
Here are some pictures that I took of the Poem Booklets.
|Here are the front covers of my poem booklets. I also used another cover on the inside that was for Nursery Rhymes.|
|Sample of an October poem last year that we used. The kids loved this poem. It taught them about Columbus Day and we hit many common core reading standards along with some social studies standards.|
|Another October poem that the kids learned about fall.|
|I did several choices for a front cover. I will use labels for their names once I get a class list.|
|Sample from the first week I will be doing homework. It changes after 4 weeks to add some DIBELS components.|
|This actually looks a lot thicker than what it really is since it is standing up. The entire year is in this binder. I ran it back to back and it's not that thick!|
|Here is the area that we are going to put goals that we have mastered. This board is almost finished too, just need some additional items.|
