Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a pre-k teacher at a Title 1 school with a vast majority of students who come from low social economical backgrounds. I teach 40 students and I am amazed at how many of them have never been exposed to poetry. Rhyme, rhythm, and repetition are so important to developing early language skills and poetry is a beautiful way to help children develop these skills and a love of the written word. Poetry Works, is a wonderful classroom resource available through Parsons Learning Group that is specifically designed for Pre-K students. The kit includes engaging, themed poetry poster cards that encourage and enhance fluency in all students. The kit provides flexibility and abundant support as well as a multitude of options for paired readings, shared readings, choral readings, and Readers' Theater. This kit will help me support fluency development in my much deserving students. Thank you for your help.
