Download a copy of the spider poem below:
sing to "I'm a Little Teapot"
I have students read the poem several times. This helps build fluency, word recognition, identify high frequency words and rhyming words and what ever else you may think of. Then, I have them cut the poem apart, mix it up really good, sequence it, then glue it to another piece of paper. They can then add it to their poetry journal for future reading.
