Poetry Activities that Inspire a Love of Poetry – Proud to be Primary
Do you teach poetry in your primary classroom? We read and learn a poem of the week and complete tons of activities to help build fluency and word knowledge. Children love to read these weekly poems and yours will too! Check out this post and grab a few FREE poems for your classroom.
Free! Math Buddy Chat is a step-by-step method for students to solve word problems with a buddy. In this activity, students alternate between working independently and working together as they solve each problem. To make this activity really easy to implement, I created a PowerPoint that you can download and show to your students as you walk them through this 4-step problem-solving method.
