This week our second grade blogging team is featuring activities and printables related to poetry. I decided to combine a classic lovely poem about autumn with something practical like handwriting practice.
I created copywork from the poem “Autumn Fires” by Robert Louis Stevenson. “Autumn Fires” is a simple poem with vivid imagery your children will be able to see as they read.
“Autumn Fires” by Robert Louis Stevenson
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
I thought the poem would make a lovely copywork printable for poetry week as well as a great addition to my extensive copywork product collection in my shop.
This copywork set includes both print and cursive. There are three line options so you can use whichever ones works in your situation.
You can open a preview right here to see them up close.
