Jivey picked one of my favorite topics this week: Poetry!
It's one of my very favorite things to teach students-and I spend time on it all year long!
I usually start out by showing them an example of what we are going to do, or show them a SMART Exchange lesson.
This week, we are going to be focusing on Haikus, so I'll be showing this (yes, I know it's grade 1, but it is a good intro-since most of my kids have never heard about it before!) and this.
After we learn a little about the type of poetry, we brainstorm a list of ideas we could use to write.
Then I send them to work!
They usually do a rough draft, and we edit it-they do it on a nice piece of paper and illustrate.
They love doing it too! Our poetry lessons are usually a fun, quick lesson that they kids enjoy-they always ask if they can do another one!
