This Year’s Poems

October 2014

These are the poems we are learning this school year (2014-2015). My children at home this year are 8 (daughter) and 5 (son).

This year we are doing a little Circle Time in our school mornings a couple days a week, and we say and act out the poem with little motions. Poetry is wonderful for vocabulary, literacy, and grammar.

It’s also great for wiggly boys who don’t want to sit still but will jump around and pretend to be a squirrel or caterpillar.
