The ideas presented here are incredibly practical, easily implemented, and highly effective. -Kathy Collins Author of Growing Readers Why aren't there more good poems for use in shared reading? Poems that address key curricular goals while making the most of young children's love of rhythm and rhyme? Now, thanks to Zoe Ryder White, there are. She's stocked Playing with Poems with lessons built around 44 brand-new, original poems written precisely for word study. Only a teacher could write both poems filled with word study concepts and lessons that help children internalize them. Through a shared reading framework, White presents word study lessons that target literacy foundations such as:
- concepts about print
- rhythm and rhyme
- sight words
- spelling patterns
