This is a beautiful bulletin board for spring. Have students color and complete their tree. Make sure their name is on the tree. Then have students write a poem about trees or spring. This can be done easily if you format the poem. Center the TREES poem by Joyce Kilmer on the bulletin board. Put student art and poetry around it.

I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray,
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair
Upon whose blossom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems were made by fools like me
But only God can make a tree.
­Joyce Kilmer
