Immersing Your Students in Poetry
We like to begin this poetry study with at least two days of immersion.
To create the immersion days, we suggest gathering a variety of poetry books. We suggest reading aloud a few of your favorites.
Then, give students the opportunity to explore on their own. Place poetry books around the room and let students immerse themselves in the books.
Students can read independently or with partners or small groups.
Students can share favorites on your smart board using a document camera. You can allow students the opportunity to draw what they visualize as they read other poems.
Your goal is to allow students to see that poetry can be fun and engaging!
Once students have had the opportunity to explore the books, you are ready to move on to our poetry booklet.
We like to do this booklet as a guided activity. Give students the opportunity to write a poem each day and wrap up your writing workshop by allowing students to share their writing.
