Rember the first childhood poem you composed yourself? It was a special and proud day for me. Children enjoy discovering the magic of forming meaning and expressing themselves in a form of poetry.
In our classroom, we always introduced children to the world of poetry from an early age. Poems were displayed in our Montessori classroom inspiring children to create their own.  In this post, you will find a great collection of free poetry printables for kids.

Classroom Jr – a fabulous collection of poems for kids dedicated to celebrations and important events.

Chickadee Thanksgiving poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson  – a gorgeous printable that will look beautiful on display. It’s a great thanksgiving poem for children to say before enjoying their meal.

We had a beautiful song we sang together before lunch in our Montessori classroom every day. Children loved this tradition: 

“For the golden corn and the apples on the tree, 

For the golden butter and honey for our tea; 

For fruits and nuts and berries, that grow beside the way.

 For birds and bees and flowers, we give thanks every day”
