Instructional Ideas

  • Have kids circle each -ed word
  • Require learners to highlight or underline the answers to the comprehension questions in the text
  • Read the poem out loud as a class or in small groups or centers
Classroom Considerations

  • Red and sled are the only two -ed words in this poem, so you will likely want to supplement instruction of -ed words with additional exercises
Pros

  • The fun winter theme will engage learners; maybe they can tell stories of their own sledding experiences
  • Handwriting lines are provided to support emerging writers
Cons

  • Answers are not included; however, they should be easy to determine
