Poetry – The Squirrel

Hello readers!

The first poem we will be memorizing this year is a short, fun poem. I found that it can have two different titles. Some people have titled it “The Squirrel”, while others have titled it “Whisky, Frisky”. The author is anonymous.

I made a short video with the pictures I used in the sheets I created. I figured it would help the kids see the same pictures they are looking at in their sheets.

Below you can download a file containing three different resources.

1. Written Poem with illustrations


2. Pictures only Sheet.


3. Picture cards. Cut these out, mix them on the floor or table and have your child put them in the correct order as he recites the poem. The cards have a small number on the lower right corner. This number represents the Stanza number.


I also wanted to share this cute animation of the poem. Hope your kids like it:

Have a blessed week and I pray that your school year starts off wonderful!
