The poems we wrote today are part of our monthly theme of Identity. They will become part of a larger collaboration with art class, as Tracy and the students are working on their "identity boxes". I can't wait to see the finished projects - they are sure to be sweet and very meaningful.
After listening to some examples of imagery in writing, the students were given a template to fill out. Then copies were made, and the copied poem was cut apart on the lines. The lines were all scrambled up and then glued/taped today in a random order to create yet another poem! This was such a creative way to create and recreate a piece of writing, and children were very pleased with the results.
