The Free March A Poem Each Week has arrived.
This month goes from poems about tygers, friends, rainbows, and beards. We feel the sadness of friends moving, and celebrate the love of friends and family.
Poetry is great for read alouds and introducing and reviewing standards.

The Tyger by William Blake
(You can find this poem and others in Love that Dog by Sharon Creech)
Friends by Abbie Farewell Brown
The Rainbow by Christina Rossetti
There Was an Old Man With a Beard by Edward Lear
These discussions and activities give students a chance to connect the poems to themselves and the world around them. Many times we forget the fun of poems because we had to “dissect” them in high school and college. But, kids love it! Poems break rules, have a rhythm that kids understand, and allow them to quickly make connections.
Each of these poems can be easily found in your school or local library. Many of these poems used can be found with an online search as well. If you have trouble locating these poems, please ask your school library media specialist for assistance. Use these FREE resources to get your students excited about reading poetry. These are great fillers during the holiday season for read alouds, end-of-the day, and winding down from recess.
