This companion to the Fountas & Pinnell Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study System series uses poetry to its full advantage to expand children’s oral language capabilities, develop phonological awareness, and teach about the intricacies of print. The poems in Sing a Song of Poetry immerse students in rich, rhythmical language, providing age appropriate opportunities to enjoy language through shared reading, stimulate oral language development, connect words, and much more. Poetry enhances any early childhood curriculum.
