At the end of April, we had just dug into writing nonfiction. I gave my kindergarten students many choices: what topic, write a poem or book? They were so excited to begin and so was I! If you want to read/see the beginning stages, check out this post.
Most of my students chose to write a book, but a few brave souls decided to try writing a nonfiction poem instead. The buzz in the room while the kids were working was absolutely amazing! It was one of those moments when I thought to myself, "This is why I teach!"
All of the books and poems turned out beautifully. It was really hard to choose a few to share here, but here are a few that are updates from the kids I showcased the beginning stages of in the last post, as well as a few more that I just couldn't resist!
You will notice that all types of writers did really well with this project. The highest writers did their normal great work, but the lowest of my writers really did a fantastic job too!
