Quick and Easy Systems = Success with EL Education

I’m all about quick and easy systems for getting the job done, but not sacrificing the content or quality. When I was first starting the EL Education Kindergarten curriculum, the thought of centers/work time really gave me anxiety. I had a center system that worked well for me and my classroom and the thought of changing it really threw me for a loop. So I set out to find a way to incorporate new centers and activities within the framework of the EL Education Skills Block, while still keeping my sanity.

Adding a Dash of Ease to Your EL Education Kindergarten Poems with Low-Prep Fun

Now, let me spill the beans on how life got a whole lot simpler – low-prep activities! One way I made life easier was to include low-prep activities. For one of our work time activities, I print the EL Education Kindergarten cycle poems 2 per page on half page mailing labels like these (affiliate link). Students peel the mailing label off and place it into their journal. Now it’s ready to go! Low prep (no resizing or cutting because the poems in my store come with full-page and half-page options) and low mess. And the best part? It’s a no-glue zone – low mess, high success!

Epic Adventures with Centers and EL Education Poems

Hold on to your hats because this resource isn’t just a time-saver; it’s like a superhero in your EL Education kindergarten toolkit. Imagine transforming this poem resource into a cool EL Education kindergarten fluency center or becoming the go-to activity for early finishers. They can highlight letters and high-frequency words for that specific cycle – talk about interactive learning while staying aligned with the EL Education curriculum! And let me tell you, it was a lifesaver for me because my students always had a poem ready to read, even if their book box wasn’t at their table. By the end of the year, they proudly had 25 poems right there in their poetry journal.

But wait, there’s more! Let the learning party continue with some creative extension activities. Challenge your students to add an extra line or sentence to the poem, come up with rhyming words, or tap out syllables in the words. Ask them to share why they liked or didn’t like the poem. For those craving an extra challenge, give them the poem with missing words and let them fill in the blanks.

Endless Fun and Perfect Partnerships

These cycle poems aren’t just one-trick ponies; they team up seamlessly with my other EL EL Education Centers, making your classroom a hub of excitement and creativity without sacrificing your sanity or time. So, let’s kick off this journey of educational exploration and success together – the possibilities are as boundless as our collective imagination! πŸŒˆπŸ“š
