The Famous Janiel Wagstaff

My dear friend, Janiel Wagstaff is a very talented lady. 
She teaches, is an administrator, mother, daughter and published author many times over.
Check your Scholastic shelf... I'm sure you'll find many of her books in your own classroom.

Janiel just posted this poetry file in her TpT store!!
It's fabulous, easy to use and adorable... and... it's
aligned to Common Core Standards!

This K-2 resource includes sixteen perfect, kid-approved, cross-curricular poems you’ll love! Teach about health, safety, holidays, life cycles, plants, animals, insects, weather, seasons, and subtraction with delightful rhymes and rhythms! Use the accompanying pages to practice fluency (each poem’s lines are numbered and there is a grid at the bottom of the page for recording reading rate for up to five repeated readings).

You’ll also get ready-made rime/chunk flash cards you can use to teach and reinforce words right from the contexts of the poems. These can be used for all kinds of word work and for posting on your Word Wall.

Everything you need is ready to go!
 Just print and teach!

*Poem Titles: Colors; Take Care of Yourself; Five Fat Peas; Winter Months; Animal Voices; The 100th Day of School; Stop! And Spot a Tadpole; Precipitation; A Brand New Year; Earthland; Safety, Safety; Signs of Spring; Seeds! Oh, Seeds!; Insects, Insects; Parenthood; I’m a Scientist

Check it out... you'll love it!!

I have Janiel's Word Wall book and it is well worn. I used many of her ideas when I taught first grade. I was lucky enough to attend a workshop by Janiel several years back. She was fantastic!
