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.
The library isn’t the only place our Tree Frogs have been writing poems lately–many teachers have been doing poetry activities in their classrooms, too! Mrs. Moore’s 1st grade students each wrote an “I Am From” poem to share about their families, homes, and things that they love.
Our PreK and Kindergarten classes explored a variety of shape poem examples before creating their own collaborative concrete poems using Tagxedo!
Our kindergarten and 1st grade students used their knowledge of word relationships to write opposite poems using ReadWriteThink’s diamante generator.
Last week, our 1st grade classes wrote their first poems of the season with the help of ReadWriteThink’s acrostic poem generator (and some organizational assistance from Padlet.com).
Did you do anything fun to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s 109th birthday?
Our Tree Frogs sure did!
Wacky socks, silly hats, cozy pajamas, guest readers, star stickers, and digital storytelling were just some of the ways we enjoyed Read Across America Day!
I’ll look forward to trying out these new gizmos in the morning….
