Another great idea shared by Diana at One Literacy Coach: Don't Poems

Today, I'm dedicating my don't poem to my students.

Don't have a good fit book?

Don't forget to think when you read.

Don't keep reading if it doesn't make sense.

Don't forget you are a very important person with a capital I.

Don't forget ending punctuation.

Don't you want to reread and check your work?

Don't let me forget that I'm a learner too.

Don't stop making me laugh every day.

Don't you know that you can do this?

And don't ever, ever forget . . .

YOU are why I love being your teacher.
