New Years Poem for Kids

Help the kids ring in the new year with this New Years poem for kids and printable pocket chart center activity. 

New Year's Here is a simple, catchy, poem that I've used in the years past.  I've now created this printable to go along with my collection of poems for kids.


After adding the poem to a poetry notebook, the kids will love doing this build a poem activity.  

All of the work is done for you! This low-prep pocket chart center includes a colorful poem for display, as well as each word printed on color-matching cards, and a title card.  You can find more tips for organizing your pocket chart centers, HERE


This New Years Poem, sung to the tune of Frere Jacques, can be used as a shared reading activity, mini-lesson, or as a balanced literacy station.  Some teachers have also left feedback stating they love using these poems during their morning meeting routine.  Other teachers have said they send them home in a gallon-size bag, and encourage parents to work with their kids to build and recite the poems.
