This month we have been reciting the following poems/songs. Em really enjoys them. I used these two poems while teaching Kindergarten. Currently, they are hanging on the fridge. Poems and songs are a great tool for building linguistic and musical intelligences.
This poem is from Maurice Sendak's book Chicken Soup with Rice. It is a fabulous book for introducing calendar months to children. I introduce each month's poem on the first day of the month.
