February Vacation Poetry Week!
February 25 @ 10:00 am - February 28 @ 6:00 pm
Choose a poem to share on our “poetry tree” or write one (templates will be available to help kids/adults write poems). A tree will be created in construction paper and the poems will be the leaves.
There will be a Poetry Charades game to act out the action/subject of the poems, and poetry books will be on display for children/parents to read and check out.
Also don’t forget to come to our Storytime at 10am, which will be poetry-themed!
Poetry Tea Time: children will be encouraged to dress up and attend a tea party with snacks and “tea”. During the tea time children and their caregivers will share poems. Miss Emily will also read poems to the group.
Build a poem day!
Throughout the children’s room their will be poetry stations. Magnetic Poetry will be available for children to use to build a poem and building blocks will have words on them so the children can build poems that way too. Poem templates will be available too.
Saturday March 2 at 10am
