To celebrate National Poetry Month in April and prepare for our annual Poetry Picnic, we’ve been writing a LOT of poems in the library! Visit this post for a link to our digital showcase.
I love this activity not only because it shows how gratitude is expressed in the Iroquois culture, but also because it emphasizes that we can all be grateful for so many things–not just on Thanksgiving, but every day.
For this activity, 2nd grade students practiced choosing good-fit books using the I-PICK strategy and the 5-finger rule.
Ms. Carrithers’ 4th grade class combined figurative language and well-crafted clues to write these fun riddle poems!
The poems in this post will make you want to sit in a box and read a book. (Or sit in a rocket ship and enjoy a magical adventure!)
What have our 1st graders been learning? Read their “Goodbye, First Grade – Hello, Second!” poems to find out.
What would the world be like if 2nd and 4th graders were in charge? Read our class poems to find out!
