I have been an early childhood educator for more than 30 years. My teaching experiences and professional development training have helped me build a treasure chest of ideas, materials and methods to guide children through the writing process. My area of expertise is utilizing children’s literature and poetry as the cornerstone for teaching every subject. Kicking off a science unit on life cycles by reading Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great way to capture the student’s attention. Reading any of Jack Prelutsky’s poems will bring children to giggles… a wonderful introduction for a grammar lesson on parts of speech. Children will become confident in their writing abilities when they are given the time and guidance to listen to their own words. They will begin to understand that changing those words (revising) does not mean their work is wrong or not good enough. Providing individual attention to students during this process is key for that understanding to develop.
There is no homework assigned for this class. Children will be encouraged to continue writing poems when inspiration strikes them! An extension activity is included on the parent reference sheet.
 2 files available upon enrollment
Please print out the attached files for your learner before class: Colors Poem Sheet and Brainstorm Sheet. If unable to print, please have 2-3 sheets of lined or unlined paper for class. Also, please have: *Colored pencils (preferred) or crayons *2-3 regular, sharpened pencils *An eraser
