Poems and Plays can Help Reluctant Students

Today is the 1st day of spring and I wanted to share something with all my wonderful followers to help the reluctant students in your classrooms. Whether you live in a big city or small town you will have ESL students and those struggling learners who are afraid to take risks for fear that other students will make fun of them. I found that with poems, chants and plays those students participate and feel part of the class because it is risk-free. I have always loved writing poems, chants and plays for my students and watch them smile and laugh. It helps them feel like they belong which all students and most adults want to feel too. I hope your students will love these poems and my Spring play. I would truly appreciate it if you would rate it, +1 it and follow my store or blog as there will be more to come.

It's Manic Monday Classroom Freebies and today I have a great freebie for all of you.
 Here's a great Spring freebie for using pictures to teach spring vocabulary and Categorize Spring Vocabulary words. This is a great way to assess your students' understanding of Spring Vocabulary Words and meet Common Core Standards.
                                                        4 Spring Categories:
                                                        Spring Weather Words
                                                       Things People Do in Spring
                                                       Things We See in Spring
                                                       Things that Animals Do in Spring
Thanks for making a difference for all the students you teach.
