David's New Friend:U1W1 Poem and Activity

Well, this week we begin David's New Friend, therefore, the poem for this week is called "New Friend" by Maria Fleming.  I am having the students draw a portrait of a new friend they've made in class.  I can't wait to see what they come up with...



Just a reminder that you can download any  of the poems that are featured on this blog here:

another great poem!Are the students required to learn each poem by heart or it's just a reading activity!

Great Poem! What are the steps for the poems? Use into them then what do you do after? How do you find they are working with the grade 2's?

The goal is reading pleasure.... in my letters to my parents I stated that I am not looking for memorization, instead I am looking for "fluency and expression...plus public speaking."
@Melanie, this is my first year in 2nd...so I don't know, but I am hoping that it will instill a love for poetry and creativity...as the 1st Grade journal did for my 1st Graders. :)
