Kindergarten Poetry Celebration

This is great. We’re going to play it this afternoon with the class. Popcorn, apple juice, and a movie to celebrate our work in poetry. Please watch the first minute, because the teacher, Lori Hickman, shares her genuine thoughts about teaching kindergarteners to write poetry. She begins by admitting she thought is was going to be a “big fast disaster” and then tells about her experience diving into this unit of study. On Friday she’s going to share a QR code in her newsletter so anyone with a smart phone will be able to access the celebration with ease. I used this QR Code generator for the code.

And one last thing…I’m sure her students will be checking in to read comments…so feel free to leave a note addressed to them and Mrs. Hickman. They are brave to share their work with the world.

  3. Wow! In kindergarten you are already poets! I love your poetry. I especially loved that even when there were poems on the same topic, each poet had something different to say. I teach 8th graders and I wish they had started their school lives as poets like you are lucky enough to do.

    The music of your poetic words is still playing in my head even though the video is over!

  5. Dear Mrs. Hickman plus your writers,
    I just wrote some poetry with some 5th graders and they would have loved hearing your poems and then sharing what they wrote too. I was impressed that you wrote about so many different topics and talked about the topics with your senses and feelings. It’s really great you made a video too. Thanks for sharing.

    Mrs. Hickman + Writers —
    Thanks for inviting me to join you for your celebration. It was great fun! You should be proud of the way you wrote one poem and then another and then another.
    Love,
    Mrs. Ayres

    I saw a lot of hard work on your pages! Your drawings were colorful and your words were beautiful. I cannot wait to share your poems with my kindergarten students. We are putting together a poetry anthology of our favorite poems that we have written over the past two months and would love to share them with you! Keep writing and playing with words, you are doing wonderful work.

  14. Dear Mrs. Hickman’s Class,
    I watched your poetry video and I love it! I think you are so brave to share your poems with so many people. You should be very proud of yourselves for all the hard work you did. Your poems are wonderful and I can’t wait to show your video to my kindergarten class. We just wrote poems too! Ours are hanging on the wall outside our classroom for others to see.
