Chalk-A-Bration September 2013

What a lovely day and a wonderful time we had while we chalked on Friday! Check out our poem and illustrations. Some students added a few more words to add to our poem as well.
Our poem was inspired by a post on The Poem Farm by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater. Check it out here.

Be kind and caring
to brothers and sisters.
Give a toy
to a little person.
Be nice
to each other.
Say nice words.
Let someone play.
Hug somebody
when they need it.
Be nice to everyone.
Are you being nice?

 Everybody be nice. (An extra line from a student).

I will be kind. I will be nice. (Some nice lines from students).

  Love Saige
I love you. (Aw, such a sweet ending).


  1. Oh, sweet chalkers! This is so beautiful. You are very lucky to have each other and to be in such a loving classroom. May I ask if you got the idea for this poem from the poem I wrote for Zoey, about her sharing her blanket? If yes, I would love to share this with her...because she will see how kindness goes around and around and around. Thank you for this - it made me smile on such a beautiful morning. xoxo, Amy

  2. What a great group of kids you have! I love that they embraced the kindness poem, took it on and even added to it. It looks like they had a wonderful time!

  3. Dear Writers, Today I shared this poem with Zoey's teacher...it will be fun to see if she shares it with Zoey- the-kind-blanket-sharer! xo, a.

  4. Dear Writers, This note is to you from Zoey's teacher and class. You have all made the kindness go around and around! xo, a.

    Dear Writers,

    Zoey is very excited that you were all inspired by her story. Other writers in my class would like to say:

    "We are glad that other classrooms got to use Zoey's poem." (Dominic)
    "Thank you for being artistic from Zoey's poem. It looks beautiful!" (Shaylyn)
    "That is so awesome that you can do that!" (Cody)
