In today's fast paced technology focused world we need to give students the tools to process all of the information they are exposed to each day. Students do not receive all of their information through books anymore, they have moved into using digital tools to find out about topics. It is important that educators help students navigate through this new digital world they belong to with purposeful digital citizenship and media awareness lessons.
I created this set of alphabet poems to use during my shared reading time in my Kindergarten classroom. This set of 26 poems will provide you with one poem for each letter of the alphabet. These predictable poems are filled with words that begin with each letter so that your kinders can learn their letters and letter sounds in "text" which is important in a balanced literacy classroom.
Infographics are great to display throughout the classroom in order to creatively organize and display information. This particular one offers "9 Rules for Digital Citizenship," which is essential to 21st century society. It encompasses digital literacy, financial literacy, media literacy, moral literacy, and global literacy. It offers great outlets for conversations on equal rights, responsible spending, threats with technology, and respectful communication.
