My son is in Kindergarten, and he's been bringing home his Songs and Poems book every Friday to read with us. At my school, the Grade One teachers run the same type of program. In this book he had a poem for September which he sung to me. This inspired me to create my own poem for October to send home with my own students.
Now I teach Grade 2, so my students will find this poem very easy to read, but I also work in a ESL (English as a Second Language) environment where the majority of my students do not speak English at home. So to bring home a Songs and Poems book each Friday, and sing it with their parents, helps strengthen the home-school connection, and also gives success to the children struggling with Reading.
I whipped up these little pages using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! Arent' those Greeting Card Kids simply adorable?? (I'm talking about the images) I apologize that these are simply in a jpeg form. But if you'd like to take them for yourself, simply left click (I'm a PC user) and save the picture. Then you can print it out as a whole page photo and use it with your own class.
