3rd Grade Poetry Journal--in Progress

Finally finished my compilation of poems for 3rd Grade Treasures!!! Check it out at my TpT store. There's a poem for every Treasures story including the poems from Treasures (except for the last one about butterflies).  

Here's a SAMPLE of the poems that are included in the Treasures collection.

This poem is so cool.  I don't know the authors...they are Barbara and Sue Gruber.  I loved it soooo much that I chose to use it as the INTRO poem with the class picture.  If you have been following me from 1st Grade to 2nd Grade and now 3rd, you know that I always open up with a poem and a class picture.  The poetry journal becomes a scrapbook of each student's journey throughout the school year. It is journal that they love to go back and look through...years later, I've been told. 

I've been reading this book called "Common Core Curriculum Maps in English Language Arts, Grades K-5"  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/common-core-curriculum-maps-common-core/1108173284?ean=9781118108215   and it seems that poetry is very important in the Common Core Curriculum world.  I've gone through all the 3rd grade units and compiled a list of poems needed/suggested for each of the six units.  I've posted all 6 Units on my TpT store.  Check them out!!  :)  Please help me spread the word. Just4Teachers TpT store
