This online tool enables students to learn about and write acrostic poems. Elements of the writing process are also included.
Children find favorite words, phrases, and sentences from familiar stories. Working together, they combine their words and phrases to create a poem. The poem is then shared as performance poetry.

This lesson encourages students to use rhyming words to write rebus poetry modeled on rebus books, which substitute pictures for the words that young students cannot yet identify or decode.
ABC Match is a game that has students practice letter-recognition fluency while honing their memories. Students match initial letters with pictures, playing either with a timer or without.
The implementation of Common Core Standards means we have to rethink what we are teaching and how we teach it. Children are expected to dive deeper into more challenging texts, especially informational texts, right from the start of their school years. This book shows you how to create powerful connections that can strengthen primary-grade students’ literacy skills while deepening their content knowledge.
In this Web seminar, David Hornsby and Lorraine Wilson will describe how they teach phonics as children learn to read and write in classrooms that are characterized by discovery and purposeful language use.
