Kindergarten students have been learning poems throughout the year relating to our seasons, holidays, and special class themes. When learning a new poem we talk about many different things. We discuss the rhythm of the poem and sometimes find that one may be able to be sung to the tune of a familiar song. We also find the rhyming words in the poem and then create a list of additional rhyming words. Our poems also allow us to practice reading many of our kindergarten sight words. After learning the poem, we color a picture to go with it and add our own special details. Following is the latest poem students learned.
Cute Little Snowman
A cute little snowman had a carrot nose.
Along came a rabbit and what do you suppose?
That hungry little rabbit, looking for its lunch,
Ate that snowman’s carrot nose – nibble, nibble, crunch!
Earlier in the year kindergarten students presented a few poems to Van Allen students during a morning assembly. It was a great way for them to showcase some of their learning.
