I'm So Smart! poetry Craft

by Leanne Guenther

Kaitlyn (my youngest daughter) did this project when she was 5 (almost 6) and was very proud of her first poem -- it's definitely something I'll be keeping in the treasure box.

This is a great project for building self esteem in a number of different themes:


If doing this with a group, try making some cardboard Templates for the children to trace onto construction paper and cut out on their own -- this is what we did in the photo.  The shapes are large and easy to trace and cut.

Directions - Writing the Poem:

I'm so smart I can type on the computer.

I'm so smart I can run so fast.

I'm so smart I can ride my scooter.

I'm so smart I can play soccer.

Optional Alternative Poem:

I can make an M
And I can make an e
They spell a word
And that word is Me!
