We are Ms. Emmett’s kindergarten class
And oh, what a year we’ve had!
We can’t believe it’s over
And we’re all a little sad.
There are fourteen of us,
Half are girls and half are boys.
Six of us are K-fivers
And eight are K-fours.
There’s Jasmine, Sydney, Tiona,
Donavon, Faith and Jacob too.
That make up the K-5 class
Just part of the kindergarten zoo.
Then we have Autumn, Amya and Bryce,
Caitlyn, Jonathan and JT,
Montraious and Samuel
Who’re the K-4 class, you see.
We started off with an extra kid,
Jordan was his name.
He wasn’t here long,
Left almost as soon as he came.
Our year consisted of playing and learning
In everything we did.
Letters, numbers, manners, rules,
It’s a lot for a little kid.
But, Ms. Emmett made it fun,
She was patient and loving too.
We’ve learned so much this year,
Our parents can hardly believe it’s true!
We’ve tied shoes, written in cursive,
Cut, colored and sang,
Danced, made ice cream,
There were even bells we rang!
We read lots of books,
Fancy Nancy, Junie B Jones, Bear,
Dr Suess, monkeys, trucks,
There were books to keep and books to share.
We celebrated the holidays,
With parties, sweets and fun,
We celebrated day one-hundred,
(But not day one-hundred and one!)
We learned to get along with our friends,
To be thoughtful and kind and fair,
In centers we learned to play together
And how important it is to share.
Our day started with pledges and calendar,
Then the Bible story would start,
So many stories we’ve learned this year,
So many verses written on our heart.
Lunch was always a riot,
Controlled chaos, Ms. Emmett calls it.
We ate and talked and laughed and spilled,
And got reminded (a lot) to sit!
The playground was always fun
With a race to see who’d get out there first
Girls and boys running so fast
To claim for their side the treehouse turf.
We loved talking about animals
Spiders, bats, kangaroos,
Inchworms and earthworms we would find,
There were even lizards too!
We’ll all miss our friends
We’ve had so much fun!
But, who will we miss the most?
Yep, you know the one.
Our teacher Ms. Emmett,
Who’s taught us so well,
And loved us so much
We can never begin to tell.
But, we’ve shown her this year
Just how much we love her,
With smiles and hugs and artwork,
And more, just to be sure.
You see, a kindergarten teacher is very special
And our next teachers will be able to see it,
That we had a really great one.
We’re so thankful for Ms. Emmett!
