Great Common Core ELA Activities with October Poetry

I love to write poetry and chants. There were so many great themes in October I decided to put together a packet of my own original poems and writing activities that are all aligned with ELA Common Core Standards for Grades 1 and 2. There are 7 poems including "It's October Time", "Let's Play Football" Chant and "Let's Be Safe" for National Fire Safety Month.
Here's a sample of the first 4 poems. How about reading about "A Very Special Pumpkin Patch" and designing and writing about you own special pumpkin to make a My Own Pumpkin Book. Did you know that October is National Popcorn Popping Month? Well I wrote "It's Popcorn Time" just for that occasion with a fun Popcorn Punctuation activity. How fun to actually make popcorn and eat it while doing this activity.In case that's not enough here's the rest of what's in the packet.
You can click on any of the pictures to see the whole unit and see everything in the packet at my TpT store.
