Words That Sing, Kindergarten

100 Poetry Charts for Shared Reading

By Irene Fountas, Gay Su Pinnell

Words That Sing is an illustrated collection of poems, songs, and rhymes that will fill children with language, ideas, and imagery, which will help them use and enjoy the oral and written word. Enlarged charts make it possible for children to “read” a much more complex text than they could independently, enabling each child—regardless of reading level—to benefit from the many values and goals that poetry brings to the classroom.
