Kindergarten Poetry… it’s like FREE books but better! I always struggled at the beginning of the year with finding books that my kiddos could read independently at the beginning of the year. Then I saw a picture someone had sent where she had created poetry books  from my Nursery books from.  I thought… PERFECT!

This is how the poems look in the pocket chart.  I still want to keep the pocket chart version… but why not add a lap book to use for other shared reading lessons or to place in the classroom library!

Back to school kindergarten poetry

So I printed two copies of the poems.  One set of the poems was used for the pocket chart.

Kindergarten Poetry: Music and Videos

Miss Jenny and I have created Music and Videos for each of the poetry sets.  

To make it easier for you to play them in your classroom, you could either download the videos or you have the option to stream them through Vimeo.  I added a Jukebox to help you.  You just click on the poem and you are good to go!

    Is the song book cover available anywhere? These poems have been such a fun addition to my kindergarten classroom.

      Yes! You get the song book cover in the music and video download. Just redownload the file again because it was a new addition to that supplement. 🙂
