Are you ready for the next First Language Lessons enrichment activity for First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind Level 1? (If you have no clue what I’m talking about, check out my summary of First Language Lessons here and the first enrichment activity in the book.)
This enrichment activity goes along with the poem “Work” in Lesson 15. Do this activity around Lesson 22 to reinforce the poetry memorization. (These activities a also great to turn into your charter, if that applies to you.)
Lesson 15: “Work” poem flip-up activity
Young children (materials – printable on white paper, pencil, scissors, 1 piece of light colored construction paper, glue stick, crayons.)
- Print “Work” copy work printable.
- Have children trace the letters.
- Cut along the dotted lines.
- Run a line of glue stick across the top back of the copy work paper. Center and paste onto the construction paper.

Older children (materials – blank white paper, pencil, scissors, 1 piece of light colored construction paper, glue stick, crayons.)
- Place the piece of white paper in the landscape direction and fold into fourths. Creating 4 equal columns.
- Write the title of the poem at the top center of the paper and write the poet’s name underneath.
