Traditionally we study poetry in our library classes during April because
April is Poetry Month.
After reviewing the playground games on the Hawes Primary School blog,
and more on Mr. Salsich’s blog in Connecticut
and even more on Open the Door to B4 in New Zealand,
plus 4 more on Mrs. Kistler and the 49’ers
it became clear that playground songs are really poems!
So in library class, we learned some playground poems and songs!
Our first graders have learned Miss Mary Mack.
The second graders have learned Down, Down Baby.
Here is our Seattle contribution to the playground games!
A special thanks to our world blogging buddies for giving us this great lesson idea!
Down Down Baby
