9 Autumn & Fall Poems for Kids That Encourage Fluency & Comprehension

Did you know that there is a reason that kids want to read the same story over and over (and over) again? They are learning and enjoying it!

Repetition of text for beginning readers help teach letter sounds, blend sounds, sentence structure, expression, and more. When you repeat a story to your child daily, those sentences, paragraphs and pages become a part of their whole new reading experience.

They learn fluency from you by hearing the sentences flow smoothly and with proper expression. They want to copy you! So, they do copy you. And then, the words come alive for them on the page.

Poems and rhymes are an excellent way to start building fluency in your beginning reader. The brevity of the sentences makes it easier for a child to stay focused, interested, and not feel overwhelmed.

Your student can begin to memorize the poem, and the shapes and letters of the words begin to take on meaning.

Before taking you to the poems, I'd like to recommend this Sight Words Bundle that includes a FREE Color the Sight Word Turkey printable. Check it out HERE!

Children's poems about snow (and books about snow)

Fall weather means a drop in the temperature, and depending on where you live - SNOW! For me, in Oklahoma, it means the chance of snow, or the hope of snow is close. And some are already getting a ton of snow. 

Take advantage of the weather and include in your library children's poems about snow and books about snow. Here are a few ideas from Amazon.
