Fall is in the air! Do you need a filler or a quick read aloud for September? If so, the September A Poem Each Week is a great resource for reviewing important standards and teaching students a love for reading.
Why start the year with poetry?
It’s a fabulous way to teach students important standards. Poetry is also a great tool for students who get intimidated with reading. In this post you will learn about the September Edition of A Poem Each Week, as well as find links to great posts and freebies that will help your students fall in love with poetry! At the bottom of this post you will find links to all of my current (FREE) editions of A Poem Each Week.
Poems Covered in the September Edition of A Poem Each Week:
Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout by Shel Silverstein
Bed in Summer by Robert Louis Stevenson
Mine by Lillian Moore
Fog by Carl Sandburg
For each poem a list of questions are provided. If you want to extend the lesson, additional activities are provided to help students get a deeper understanding or connection with the poem.
These poems can be easily found in your school or local library or with an online search. If you have trouble locating these poems, please ask your school library media specialist for assistance. You can find more instructions here.
