Monthly Poems

Building fluency in students takes a lot of practice, patience, and perseverance. However, all the work involved is worth it, as students need to be fluent readers. Since teachers understand this importance, they find creative ways to improve fluency. For instance, practice does not always need to be in the form of passages. It can be reading poems and songs! Both of these allow students to practice reading in creative formats. Thankfully, the Monthly Poems for February and A Year of Poems and Songs are ready to go! Students will love building fluency with these activities.
