Little Poets

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