Winter Poems for Kindergarten: December and January
When winter comes in kindergarten, something magical happens. Students seem to come back from the winter break and they have grown… both in size and in their independence. But one thing they still love is our weekly poem. Let me share a few of our winter poems.
Goodness, gracious! We are singing this Gingerbread Man poem in the halls all the way up to May. So when we put it in as a station, they are thrilled!
Winter Poems for Kindergarten: Center Activity
So when we put it in as a station, they are thrilled! Students work together to put the poem back in order!
They can also highlight certain sight words that they know. These poems are recorded (can you see the iPhone?) Students can scan a QR code to listen to the song while they are reconstructing it!
Here is another poem that has been moved into a center activity.
The songbook sits right next to Poetry Station so students can scan the QR code and listen to the poem! EASY!
Winter Poems for Kindergarten: Videos too!
There are times when we put the video on and they sing along as well. It is a fun way to start our mornings! Those repeated opportunities to see and read (sing) these poems reinforce fluency and prosody.
You can find these poems by following the links below. I have two sets since some teachers have looped with their class and they wanted to have a new set of poems:
- Kindergarten: Poetry Unit, Songs, Videos, and Interactive Notebook
- Kindergarten or First Grade: Poetry Unit, Songs, Videos, and Interactive Notebook
