Looking for a Beginning of the Year bulletin board idea. This poem may be exactly what you need. It is simple - just print, cut, hang and your bulletin board is complete. Add a few photos of your new students and you have an awesome, original display. Your students and parents will love it!
This download is one of the best Back to School poems ever. It includes the three reasons why children go to school (and teachers too)!
It is simple and children can easily memorize it the first days of school. Even parents love it. Instead of asking their child, “What did you do at school today?” They can more specifically ask about the three reasons.
In addition to the poem, School is ready for bulletin boards or pocket charts. All the pieces (words) are ready to be reproduced, cut, and displayed. The pieces are in 2 sizes to meet your needs and space. If your school has an Open House a few weeks after school starts, add photos of your current students along with the poem and create an awesome bulletin board display.
Use the smaller size with a pocket chart for a poetry or literacy center in 1st grade.
This is a great resource for tracking and print awareness.
Poem was written by Annie Jewell. It's an original! Be the first in your school to own it!
