The fish and I are studying one poem each month this year. To learn more about how we structure this study check out our first “poem” we studied, which was actually the book Chicky Chicky Chook Chook by Cathy MacLennan.
Our plan for the school year is:
September: Chicky Chicky Chook Chook by: Cathy MacLennan
October: The Wind and the Leaves by: George Cooper
November: Who Likes The Rain? by: Clara Doty Bates
December: The Minstrels by: William Wordsworth Note: This poem was written in the mid 1800s and I had to provide the boys with lots of vocabulary support, but they still enjoyed it as much as the other poems so far.
January: Falling Snow
February: Abraham Lincoln by: Mildred Plew Meigs
March: My Shadow by: Robert Louis Stevenson
April: Good Morning Merry Sunshine
May: Where Go The Boats? by: Robert Louis Stevenson
