Poetry Possibilities for December is a collection of poems about December with teaching points for each poem. The teaching points include:
Each poem is copy ready. These poems would make great additions to your students’ poetry anthologies.
The range of reading levels is broad in these poems, making them appropriate to both primary and intermediate classrooms. This should allow the teacher to accommodate students reading above or below grade level.
Please visit my teaching blog: itsabouttimeteachers.blogspot.com There are lots of ideas for using poetry in your classroom there.

You have reached the one stop shop! My teaching experience spans more than 3 decades and reflects my years in every grade from K to 5, Gifted & Talented to Reading Recovery, enrichment to Title I. The majority of my experience is pretty evenly divided between 1st grade and G/T for grades 1 - 5. My shop, then, is filled with 1st grade fun curricula and myriad critical and creative thinking products for GATE self-contained and/or enrichment programs. In 2000, I became a Reading Recovery teacher. That fabuous experience translates into some wonderful reading materials created for my students and now you can share them, too.
