Educents Poetry Bundle

Do you know what's coming up next month??!! Poetry month! One of my favorite things about writing is teaching figurative language, which is a huge part of poetry.
Some of my favorite books/resources to teach idioms and figurative language are:
These are great for students to reference in your classroom. When I have a figurative language center, I leave several copies of the Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms out for students to use.

Poetry is just so fun to teach.. I hope you share the love! So some friends and I have teamed up with Educents for an amazing bundle of instant downloads to teach about poetry!

http://www.educents.com/

This bundle includes two of my products that I know your students will love and will be used all year long! 
This first product is one of my first products on TPT and I created it to get my students to use more idioms in their writing.

This bundle includes a pre-test and post-test. I just like to see what they know when they come into 4th grade...
Loving the end results!
I leave my idioms up all year long, but they could be introduced one at a time and put on a bulletin board. (We don't have much bulletin board space and I like the way it looks lined around my door!)

I make these posters interactive by having students place their name on a Post-it note every time they use that particular idiom in their writing or in conversation. That sticky note is a sure way to get them fired up about using these idioms!

Next up is one of my favorites...Figurative Language Bulletin Board and Tracking Sheets.
I love this because it is a year long bulletin board and all student produced!

As students find figurative language in books or during my read aloud, they record them on Post-its and put them on my metal cabinet. It's a very exciting time in our classroom when someone gets to post on the board!
When one of the sections fills up, you can start over again!
My favorite part about this part of my classroom is when I see students running over during writing to use one of these awesome examples of figurative language in their own writing! 
They also record their findings on student tracking sheets to reference in their writing folders.
Again, my favorite part about these products is that they are YEAR long, interactive, and brighten my classroom!
But wait, there's more...several of my buddies have combined their amazing products for this bundle! 
 
For a limited time it is $10.99 from Educents which is about 75% off!  It also includes these other great products so there is sure to things you love!  

And if you have never purchased from Educents before.. they always have a great deal for your first purchase.  Click here if you are a first time purchaser to take advantage of a  special offer just for you!

  2. I love poetry! Did you know that all of Jack Prelutsky's poems can be sung to popular songs (I've been working on the railroad, On top of spaghetti, 99 bottles of Coke, etc)? I learned that in my graduate poetry class and love using it in the classroom. My students always loved to sing them.
