Roses Are Red, Violets are Blue - I've Got Some Poetry Just For You!

Can I have two evenings of conferences, please?  Comin' right up! 

Spring conferences are "as needed" and you've heard me brag about this bunch a few times - so, needless to say, I don't need to conference with too many.  As much as I can't wait for summer vacation - I'm sort of dragging my feet.  You just never know what the next year will bring {Kids under tables, kids slamming doors, kids running away, kids throwing wet toilet paper balls up on the bathroom ceiling...} and this year has brought lots of smiles to my face.

I finished typing up my poems from our poetry collection and thought I'd share them.  Hopefully you find a few you can use now and at the end of the school year.  I have one or two for each month {give or take}.  I put mine on chart paper and put the collection below in a duotang notebook that the kids keep in their personal bookshelves to read during Daily 5. I blogged more about it {here}. 

Black and white cover {in case you're frugal like me} and the whole packet.

Hope you can use them!!!!
