Thanksgiving poems that are cute, clever and probably easy enough to read that your early reader might be able to tackle them on their own. Poems are also great for early readers because the rhyming helps them predict/figure out what unknown words might be and poems aren’t usually long and cumbersome. It takes a lot of energy and concentration to figure out all of those words when children are first beginning to read, so poems are a great way to practice reading and fluency with something short that won’t tucker them out too fast. A sense of accomplishment is something you always want to strive for with early readers and poems are a great way to achieve that goal.
