Poetry is such a perfect way to introduce kindergartners to the early stages of literacy. It's brief. It's fun. It's got rhythm! The poems in this personal poetry collection have been carefully crafted to meet the specific needs of kindergartners. Themes and topics used by most kindergarten teachers are the focus of the collection. There are poems about friendship and family, the seasons, the first and last day of school, animals, and much, much more. Most of the poems are from four to six lines long, making tracking easier for the emergent reader. The longer poems have very few words per line or include lots of repetition. In addition, an anchor word begins nearly every title and poem. Having a high frequency word as the first word of the title and the poem gives kinders a sense of confidence. Once they've read a word that is an old friend, off they go!
