Back to Basics: Poems
Published: November 15, 2016
Through poems, we provide students with reinforcement and exposure in their beginning literacy skills. Each unit (in the beginning units) has 3 poems that work on 1-2 focus letters per poem. Through the vertical phonics approach, we introduce students to the most frequent sounds of a letter in order to provide them with the skill to recall these sounds when later decoding unfamiliar words. Phonemic awareness and print concepts are our main focuses as we move through each unit, and the poems always include engaging content that is closely related to the theme of the current unit.
