If you have struggling readers with low confidence, using these short, decodable rhyming poems will allow them to read with success. Each poem has practice sheets that include 5 areas of essential reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
Plus, they are silly, engaging, and help instill a love for wordplay!
These poems can be used with students who are comfortable with beginning and ending consonant letters and beginning common sight words. These skills are reviewed and practiced in the warmup exercises before each poem. There are also practice and review sheets included in the back of the book.
