Color Cats Freebie

Barb at Grade ONEderful loves using poetry in her classroom, as do I.  She's sharing two great poems today about teeth.  You should really go get yourself a copy of each.  I decided to join her and throw a post together about a poem that I like to use at the beginning of the year too.  It's simple as all get out, but my kids always enjoy it.  It's got a great rhythm, useful color word recognition, the "at family," and a little surprise in the middle.  (I apologize for not being able to give credit to the brilliant person who wrote it.)    



Click on the picture for your copy.  Then head over and visit Barb!
