Teaching Poetry

Happy Friday everyone! National Poetry Month is coming to an end, but I still wanted to share with you some things I did in my class to get my first graders excited about writing poetry. I was always a little intimidated to teach poetry. But I jumped right in this year and had a blast with my first graders! If you are someone who was like me, you should definitely check out this post on my blog.

My main goal was just to get my students inspired and feeling confident about writing poetry. I also wanted to get my first graders thinking about good verbs and adjectives to use while writing poetry. Hopefully the use of good verbs and adjectives will transfer to all forms of writing!

So come on over to my blog to see how we created these poem during shared writing.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
