Kindergarten has been rockin' on their Poetry Journals. We have added 20 poems so far this year that we have been working on. I am amazed at how far they have come with their reading. Reading from our Poetry Journals have been a way for students to identify words they know, discover strategies for decoding unknown words and to develop fluency in their reading. Identifying punctuation such as the exclamation mark and comma has added a lot of voice to our reading as well. By the end of the year, students should bring home a whole volume of poetry that they can read to you!
