Poetry – Where Go the Boats?

This is another sweet and wonderful poem by Robert Louis Stevenson. Did you ever play at a river or creek growing up?  I did! And we had so much fun exploring in the water, making up games, finding ways to catch fish, building with rocks, among many more creative activities we came up with. Such great memories! 🙂

Here’s the video to go with the poem:

I have created a few materials to go with the poem. First, I made the written poem in one sheet.

Next, I made a sheet with just the illustrations that go with the poem.

Last, coloring sheets are a must in our household. 🙂

I always make the picture cards to put in correct sequence as my children recite the poem, but because of file size, I am not able to include it in the file. Feel free to send me a message or comment below if you are interested in getting the picture cards. I am more than happy to send that to you.
