Using Poetry in 1st Grade

I love poetry! I always have. I think there's a lot we can learn from just reading poems in the classroom. Each week we take a poem-some of my favorites are from: Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Jacqueline Woodson. I read the poem to them on Monday. Tuesday I go over any unknown vocabulary. We discuss the meaning and literary devices and on Fridays the students illustrate (and when we are in the classroom write about ) the meaning. I want to see lots of details from the poem.

Here is the response from a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson called The Moon.
