The Best Professional Literacy Resources for K-6 Teachers


My first post about the best professional math resources for teachers was so successful that I decided to create one for literacy as well. I'm sharing the professional resources that I can't live without in my classroom! Of course I use these in combination with my own creations based on student's needs but these resources have proved invaluable to me. These are must reads that I have personally used in my classroom for the last several years. This is a current list of resources based on my current teaching practices.

Poem of the Week Activities Plus a FREEBIE!


April is Poetry Month so I thought I would share a bit about how I use Poem of the Week in my classroom. If you read through to the end, there's a FREEBIE waiting for you!

When I first started with a new poem each week, we would just read the poem each day and then move on to other literacy based activities. Then as time went on I started creating activities to go along with the poems to help deepen my student's understanding of the poem. I even created my own set of poems because I wanted the poems to match what we were learning in other areas of the curriculum. For example, I wrote a poem about liquids, solids, and gases for our science unit. For math, I wrote one about fractions and another about measurement. Using poetry is a fun way to introduce new concepts and anchor student learning.
