Today was Keep a Poem in your Pocket Day at Fuller Meadow in honor of National Poetry month. 1st graders met with their K-Buddies to share their poetry folders.
We were hoping to spread our blankets out under the sun however, we settled for using our imaginations in our Kindergarten friends' classroom.
1st graders recite and read their poems often. As we review them, we look for sight words and phonics skills within them. As 1st grader's reading skills have developed, they enjoy going back to these familiar poems and using their literacy skills more and relying less on memorization.
Enjoy a wonderful April Vacation with your child!
