In the picture below is a holiday poem I like to use in my class. I don't know who wrote it, so if anyone does, please leave me a comment so I can give due credit.
The children made their candy stick to glue on their penmanship task. We had a penmanship contest for this work. To make these occasional contests fair, I choose a girl and a boy winner. The winner is not always the same perfect-penmanship-people who have a natural ability for excellent fine motor control. I count improvement so that a child who might have poor penmanship compared to others could possibly win because s/he had improved enough over their previous attempts. That way really weak writers don't give up.
Teachers, please share a Christmas poem you like to use with your class.
A shout-out goes to my first blog visitor from Mexico today. Glad you came by for a test drive.
