My students all have a Poetry Notebook made using a three-ring binder with a view pocket on the front.  Each week I give the students a new page for their notebooks with two poems.  I print an easy selection on the front of the page and a harder selection on the back.  Students read the poems, then look for Word Wall Words.  Word Wall Words are highlighted by the students with a yellow crayon or marker.  Students then illustrate the poem.

When students arrive on Monday, they get out their Poetry Notebooks and read the selections from the previous weeks.  I then pass out the new selections.  Students will work in their Poetry Notebooks as one of the week's Center Activities.
