Yay! I’m linking up with one of my favorite people ever- Erin from I’m Lovin Lit!
I wanted to share an interactive strategy I’m using to work on poetry with my students this year. We’ve been reading Love That Dog and analyzing the same poems that the boy’s class in the book had been.
I lifted part of a poem Jack had written (the main character in the book) for my students to “notice” things:
|This student AMAZED me – he usually struggles to get anything down on paper, but he rocked this one! (We have been learning about the Solar System, too, so double score!!)|
|So, he forgot the “is” but I thought it was still so creative! 🙂|
|I told this student I was going to tell his parents about this one. Hee hee!|
