Wonderful Words: Poems About Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins

August:  Getting Started with Writer’s and Reader’s Workshop

As we round the corner of summer and start our preparations for “back to school” in the U.S., this month I’ll share picture books that can be used as you plan for your writer’s and/or reader’s workshop.

Recommended Grades: 2-5


Wonderful Words: Poems About Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening is a collection of poetry about reading, writing, speaking, and listening.  It’s a celebration of words that influence our lives.      

Lesson idea: 

Reader’s Workshop: Use this book to begin your Reading Workshop at the beginning of the year to get to know your students as readers.  Read aloud one or more of the poems in this collection and discuss how reading and words influence our lives.  Then have students write their own poems related to reading or writing.
