Thanks so much for putting this together, I have been looking for a collection of poems for my kids to read for fluency practice.

@AmyThanks, Amy!! I love to hear from other teachers who are using poetry in their classroom. Are your students enjoying poetry time?

@BeccaBecca, thanks for the post. I use the poems for fluency and expression, too. Quite a few teachers who never used poetry in their classroom have learned to use them this year... and they are using it for fluency. Have you seen a difference in your students' reading???

I really do like how you're tying in poetry into the lesson. That's awesome! One thing you should keep in mind is which side of the moon should be lit. On your first picture, with the wanning gibbous and third quarter moon, the right side should be lit since the sun is on the right. I do understand that what you're showing in the picture is what we see on Earth. If you are going to use this, just make sure to explain that misconception to your students. I see a lot of teacher handouts and models do this, when it's actually incorrect. Just something to keep in mind ��
