     Dear Students and Parents,
    This year we will be learning many skills to become strong readers and writers.  One wonderful tool we use is poetry! Each student has a binder we are filling with poems to read and enjoy as warm-ups in Reader's Workshop.  Below is a winter poem we're learning this month.  Enjoy this wonderful season!
    Warm regards, Mrs. Doyle

    The Snowman

    One day we built a snowman,
    We built him out of snow;
    You should have seen how fine he was,
    All white from top to toe.

    We poured some water over him,
    To freeze his legs and ears;
    And when we went indoors to bed,
    We thought he'd last for years.

    But, in the night a warmer kind
    Of wind began to blow;
    And Jack Frost cried and ran away,
    And with him went the snow.

    When we went out next morning
    To bid our friend "Good Day",
    There wasn't any snowman there...
    He'd melted right away!
