Poetry Day

 

My Kindergarten class is doing a Poetry Puppet Show for the parents.  Each child chooses a simple poem to memorize.  Next, they make a puppet to go along with the poem.  We talk about the main idea and the main character to help generate ideas.  The puppets can be made from socks, bags, boxes or anything that works!  After a few days of practice, we invite the parents in for the show!  I have a puppet stand made from an old sheet and pvc plastic pipe.


A Child’s Prayer (author unknown)

Your hands are big,
My hands are small,
Soon I’ll be like You,
I hope it’s not too long.
But now I’m very little,
And need your help each day,
I thank you from my heart,
God bless you, this I pray.
