Winter Poetry Printable

I love to teach a variety of poetry forms to my students.  I find that I can use these short pieces to teach a number of language standards including parts of speech, syllabication, and literary devices.

Here is a set of poems from Winter and Snow Poems for Poetry Notebooks.

Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks & Gita Varadarajan

Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan is a school story told from two points of view.  Joe and Ravi meet the first day of fifth grade.  Joe has always lived in his community, and Ravi has just moved from India.  Both are trying to find ways to fit in and struggle with the school bully.

I loved this book.  It is one I would recommend reading aloud to upper elementary students.

Next Week is Friday the Thirteenth

Next week is Friday the Thirteenth.  It is also the debut of A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix.  I plan to capitalize on this, by using my Friday the Thirteenth Activities available for free in Artistry of Education @Teachers Pay Teachers and Artistry of Education @Teachers Notebook. 

I have students study superstitions and write list poems about them.  (This is a good way to bring other cultures.)


The Series of Unfortunate Events has thirteen books in the series and thirteen chapters in each book.
Attached to my review of The Series of Unfortunate Events is a graphic organizer to find evidence to support an opinion.  I suggest "Count Olaf is evil" or "Mr. Poe is inept."
