Writing Assignment Description
Kindergarten students at The College School in St. Louis, Missouri created a book of poetry, letters and artwork. Each poem about trees is accompanied by a colorful drawing. Students spent considerable time outdoors making observations, drawing, writing and exploring. Although most of the artwork was done by individual students, the poems were written collaboratively.
