Each teacher is presenting a lesson on a different kind of poetry. I am teaching rhyming poetry that creates an image, a mental picture.
After students returned to the classroom, they had a few minutes to share their poems with each other for revising and editing suggestions. Then a few of them asked if they could read their poems out loud. We had a poem for two voices, a rap with beat box accompaniment, a couple of acrostics, and a couple of the rhyming poems from my group.
At the end of the two weeks, I want the students to pick their THREE best poems to turn in for a grade. We looked at the rubric today. (I posted it on the Elementary Materials page.)
