Autumn means cooler days and all the deciduous leaves put on their big show before winter. To me, it was a natural subject for a phonics poem, so I wrote this short, simple poem to target the short o sound of the /au/ vowel digraph.
In autumn leaves do somersaults
when launching from the trees.
It's automatic every year
before the winter freeze.
-Lorrie L. Birchall
This poem is available as a free printable. It's part of my anthology collection of 133 Phonics Poems.
