A to Z Poetry Notebook

Like most kindergarten teachers, we begin our year teaching about letters, their sounds, and how they are put together to make words. In past years I connected each letter to our poem of the week, that was kept in our poetry composition books and used for one of our early literacy centers. It always needed something more, and one of my missions this summer was to think of more meaningful ways to incorporate poetry into our letter study.


Volia! Poetry A to Z was born.  In this pack, you will find 26 whimsical, original poems, that each focus on a letter of the alphabet. After a poem is introduced, students will be able to work on tasks related to the poem in their Poetry Notebook (or Binder). These will be perfectly perfect for center time. Each task sheet to go along with the poem has similar elements, so students can read and work and write in (semi-beginning of the year kinder)-independence.
The Poetry Notebooks of my past life were always kept right in each kinder's book box, and these will too.

Poems are also in full color for you to enlarge and/or laminate for introducing it whole group. I'm going to laminate these copies as we learn them, add them to a ring clip, and put them into a reading center with some fun pointers.

Want a binder version? That works too and is included:

I hope you love this as much as I do! You can find it here!

  5. I love this idea---but need it in Zaner Bloser print. Is there any chance of that happening?

  6. Just bought this (as well as your interactive Math Journals and Interactive A to Z flip book--so excited to use them all!) and I was wondering the best way to adhere the poetry cover to their folder. Do you glue it? Tape it? I know it sounds silly, but I want their covers to last all year long, and I was wondering the best way to keep them in good shape (I was planning on using folders with brads, by the way). The A to Z Poetry cover is so cute--I have to use it with the rest of their poetry notebook. :) Thanks!

    1. Hi Megan! I actually ended up trimming the white space, laminating them, then using clear packaging tape to secure them to the folder. They hold up really well that way! I am so glad you are excited about using them! Hope your kids enjoy everything! Thanks so much! :-)
