Poetry Journals: Making them Matter (December Edition)

I really thought I wouldn't have another post until someone had left a comment about the last Poetry Journal set. Yowza! I completely forgot!! Well, I woke up bright and early and put together this little post. We only have three weeks in December, so there are only 3 poems. We do one for our Gingerbread Unit, one for Holidays Around the World, and one for Christmas (because I ADORE the Peppermint Stick song)! I have kept the format the same....new journal pages, followed by old for anyone who wants them.

I plan on posting another Edition of Poetry Journals in the winter. In my room, we begin to do more activities with them and try to utilize them during center time. It is my hope to put together a post of activities!

As always, I hope you enjoy! Leave a comment if you feel chatty! Again, I am sorry for the late arrival of this post!!! Will post some pics as soon as my little bundle arrives, thanks for all the sweet comments and prayers!!!

Thanks for reading!
Shannon

  7. I was JUST thinking of you today, and wondering if your precious bundle had arrived yet! :) Thanks for posting---I was taught the "Peppermint Stick" poem back in my first year of teaching (er....dare I say it...in 1991), and it was so fun to see you 'doll it up!! :) '

    Thanks again---and praying you will have an easy delivery!

  21. These poems are adorable! I'm a collector of all things gingerbread. Did you write these poems yourself, or did you find them in a book?
