Little Poets

 

.

The Kindergarteners have learned so much this year! It is wonderful to see how they’ve grown.

..Grown

.

Mrs. Gaedcke is one of the fantastic Kindergarten teachers in our building. Her class has been reading poetry all year. They also focused on writing poetry. The book, Kids’ Poems Teaching Kindergarteners to Love Writing Poetry by Regie Routman, served as a good resource. Mrs. Gaedcke shared Kindergarten writing examples from this text as an introduction for her students. Then the children tried out their poetry ideas on their own writing.

.

Mrs. Gaedcke had a great idea to share her students’ writing with their families in a nice, published manner. So, each child selected their favorite poem from their portfolio to share with you. The class poems were turned into a Photo Story. Each student practiced reading their own poem aloud to develop their fluency. Then the children recorded their voices along with their writing so you can hear the poem straight from the authors themselves.

.

Please leave a message to encourage our little poets and show them that their writing can reach many people.

  1. I love the poem about fishing! It sounds like so much fun to go fishing. I especially like finishing up with getting ice cream. I am wondering what Superman ice cream tastes like. I bet it’s SUPER! Keep on writing!

  2. Love the photos so we can the person & their artwork behind the voice of these wonderful poems. I’m telling you, these are adventuresome kids. They do lots of amazing things which is probably why their poems are so interesting!!!!

    Keep on publishing your work.

  3. I really enjoyed listening to your wonderful poems! You all had great reading and speaking skills. I was very impressed with your word choices, such as adventurous. Your pictures also did a nice job illustrating your poems! GREAT work! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Mrs. Gaedcke and the Kindergarten…well done. All your hard work has paid off because what you have posted is real quality. It’s a blend of thoughtful kind words, good reading and smiley photos! I just love the first poem. ‘I love my Dad’, was a lovely line. I’m glad dad knows this and that it has been shared with the world.

    Mr E … I loved my dad too.

  5. I loved your poems! And I especially loved being able to listen to each of student read his or her poem. It made them even more interesting. Good readers and writers!
