Poppin's Book Nook - Poetry - All the World8:00 PM
The Poppin's Book Nook theme for February is Poetry! There is a lot of great books of poetry out there for kids, but I wanted to find one poem that we could actual do something with rather then an entire book. We happened upon All the World at the library one day, and I loved the illustrations. Imagine how happy I was when it turned out to be a poem as well!
The basis of the poem is that the world is made up of everything and everyone, including (or even especially) those every day things we do that don't seem like any big deal at the time! It really is a gorgeous book!
To go along with this simple poem, I printed out some simple outlines of the world and had the kids put things that described them or were important to them on the world. We used various colors of green and blue markers to add some interest too. Of course I had to spell lots of words for them as well as fill out Eli's, but they came up with lots of ideas. And as you would expect, there were things similar in all their worlds, and there were things that were different in all their worlds.
And now I also have a little glimpse into their world that I can hold onto for when they are older! It will be interesting to see how it changes!
