Lexie made some Very Hungry Caterpillars for her teachers in her Pre-K class. They have magnets on the bottom.
One of the Story Times that I participated in with Lexie was about the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I wanted to write a poem that went along with the Hungry Caterpillar book, but have it be about school and the teachers. When the poem was done, it didn't really go with the book, but I was pleased with how it turned out.
To my Pre-K Teachers:
Not long ago I was very small,
I came to you to learn it all.
I was anxious, excited and ready to learn,
Then I found out I had to take turns.
On Monday I painted, swept and sang.
On Tuesday I cut and glued til the bell rang.
On Wednesday I skipped and danced in a line.
On Thursday Curiosity told me a Ryme.
On Friday I practiced my new skills at home,
And discovered I could make up my own poem.
On Saturday I remembered all the snacks that we had,
And decided even the plums weren’t that bad.
On Sunday I giggled about school, Oh What Fun!
Tomorrow I see Mrs Baum, Lomeli and Etchison!
So now I’m bigger and have learned how to share.
I am who I am because I know you care.
Thank you, Thank you for all you do.
As I get older I will never forget you.
yes, I will take credit for it. written by Kristi Rowley
