Build a Poem: Scarecrow, Scarecrow - Pocket Chart Center
An engaging pocket chart center to build the poem, Scarecrow, Scarecrow. Perfect for Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving time.

This is the type of center kids WANT to go back to over and over. After you display the poem, and recite it a couple times, they become eager to build the poem using the word cards. To get even more use out of the poem, change it up the following week by personalizing the poem with student names. They LOVE that!

Scarecrow, scarecrow,
How scary can you be?
You scared the crows,
But you didn't scare me!

Personalized Poem
Scarecrow, scarecrow,
How scary can you be?
You scared _________
But you didn't scare me!

Every word is printed on a separate card, with a Gold glittered border, and a small scarecrow clip art icon ~ great for organizing, sorting, and to keep students from misplacing them with other pocket chart activities.
