Coming up the first week of the New Year: Officer Buckle and Gloria: Unit 3 Week 2 Poem and Activity

Officer Buckle and Gloria: Unit 3 Week 2 Poem and Activity

My class will be reading Officer Buckle and Gloria on our first week back (January 2nd-6th).
Who doesn't know the story of Officer Buckle and Gloria?  "Officer Buckle knows more about safety than anyone in the town of Napville. But whenever he tries to share his safety tips, nobody listens.Until, that is, the Napville Police Department buys a police dog named Gloria. 

Unbeknownst to Officer Buckle, Gloria has her own way of demonstrating safety tips–one that makes Napville sit up and take notice! Suddenly, everybody wants to hear Officer Buckle's safety speech. "And please" people say, "bring along that police dog."

When Officer Buckle discovers he's been upstaged, he vows to give up safety tips once and for all. Can Gloria convince her friend to return to the job he loves, or is Napville about to have its worst accident ever?" (

Students will create their own safety tip and craft to go with the poem.
Just a reminder that you can download any of the poems that are featured on this blog here:
