In our first grade class, we practice and try to memorize a new poem every week. At the end of each week the poems learned will be posted on the wall in our classroom. Throughout the year we will review and practice reciting all of these poems. Students will recite them as a whole class, in small groups, with a partner, and independently. This is a great way for children to acquire new vocabulary and practice their spoken English.
