"All about Me" Poster Due January 15th

We are sending home a poster for students to fill out and color on Friday, January 8th. Students will return and present their poster on Friday, January 15th. Pictures can be hand drawn or printed. The poster can be as simple or fancy as your child would like. It will not be graded. Students will earn a grade for presenting and being part of a respectful audience during the presentations (speaking and listening).

January Poem


The Months of the Year


January brings the snow,

Makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain,

Thaws the frozen lake again.

March brings breezes loud and shrill,

Stirs the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet,

Scatters daisies at our feet.

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,

Skipping by their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lilies, roses,

Fills the children’s hands with posies.
