We like to use this poem every October. I love it-I remember when my girls learned it! We learn it as a poem and include it in our Poetry Journal to highlight rhyming words and punctuation. I thought I would make a reading activity for them to use during literacy centers.
At Hobby Lobby, I found the pumpkins, gates and stars in the wood section. I used the foam bats and stars that were left over from a sort & classify math activity that I also made. I love seasonal games, books and projects!
I used velcro to attach the pumpkins and the five story cards. The children can attach the pumpkins in any order they choose but will attach the story cards in order. After repeating the poem multiple times during whole group, they should be able to place the cards in order.
So that they may self-check, I have numbered the backs of the story cards.
I teach Kindergarten and LOVE it! I have an amazing team of teachers that I work with and we are constantly challenging ourselves to come up with fresh, new ways to motivate five year olds to reach as far as they can go! Kindergarteners are funny, full of energy
and ideas and very loving-they are some of my favorite people.
This is my seventh year teaching Kindergarten at Providence and I am very happy to be here.
I am married and have two exciting,
interesting daughters that keep us very busy. My husband, Greg was active
duty military for 23 years which means we have lived in many different places-Georgia,
California, Alaska, Washington and Florida but our favorite place to be is
Huntsville, Alabama! We are very happy to call this our home. Shanley is 20
and a Junior at Auburn University. Delaney is 17 and is in her Senior year of High School. They love to visit my
classroom when they can and get to know the kids they hear me talking about
all the time!
We like to camp, go to movies, visit family, read, go to church, travel and
play with our
two dogs-Bomber and Cracker. It's an exciting life and I'm happy to share it with you!
