Enjoying our Poetry Month!
I love when first graders write poetry! We have been doing a unit on Free Verse Poetry. There is not a lot of emphasis on structure or perfect sentences so they have the freedom to get creative while trying out some different techniques! When I do this unit, I notice even the struggling students really excelling because of its free-form style. They have been writing poems about many different things… summer, cousins, cats… and even bacon!
We have spent a few weeks on this "Free Verse" poetry unit. Take a look at the photos below to get an idea of how it went! We still have a few more mini-lessons to go.
Click on the preview picture below to purchase my Poetry Unit. It gives you day-to-day mini-lessons that include suggested dialogue and read alouds. The unit is filled with student examples, anchor charts, book recommendations,activities, parent letters, self-reflection sheets, talking points and so much more!
I'll give out this unit to the first 5 people who comment for free! Please leave a comment below with your email address and I'll send it out to you.
Thanks for stopping by!
