Wordless Wednesday 5.28.14

Do you have your students share their writing with the class? If so, what are some ways that you have them share? Here we are sharing our poetry imitating a 1960's poetry reading at a coffee shop: low lighting, a stool on a stage, and clicking our fingers instead of clapping... my kiddos LOVE this!!!!!


Be sure to stop by Miss DeCarbo's blog for more fun Wordless Wednesday posts!

  1. Sometimes, I provide treats like popcorn or cookies! Students share 2hips and 1 hooray, too (all positive comments!).

    1. Do you have them write their comments or share them aloud? I think this is cute!

  2. What a great idea!!! When my Kinders share their writing, it is all about putting on a show. They love using the document camera to feature their work on the Promethean board as they read!

  3. We have a round rug at the front of the room as a kind of spotlight and then all say/shout 'lights, camera, action' (with actions) to make it a special moment. Love the poetry reading idea.

  4. When I had a regular class we had Poetry Cafe. Kids would sign up for a day and time and during the poetry readings I would serve treats. What made it really fun is that I would get out my box of hats and scarves and the kids would wear them! Mind you, the hat or scarf chosen would have nothing to do with the poem- just fun.

  6. This sounds fun! With my first graders I usually walk around as they're working and try to pick good examples of various things (good punctation, capitalization, vivid verbs). It's fun to vary what were showcasing because it helps all of the kiddos (even the struggling writers) feel confident that they are doing something great! I'll generally have them share using the ELMO and then ask the class what they think the student did great. Then we cheer! Happy summer!
