What is Throwback Thursday? How does it work, you might ask? Simply look through your PURR-fect Previous Posts, perhaps a particular favorite of yours, and re-post it! Purr-fectly easy and simple! Your post doesn't have to be from LOOOONNNGGG ago; it can be from last month or even earlier this week. And if you don't have a post to share, perhaps an old photo or two from WAY BACK will do! Even a favorite pin is PURR-fect! Just join in the Throwback fun!
Poetry is such a GREAT genre to share with students during the last weeks of the school year. This post originally appeared on The Teacher's Desk 6 on May 16 and 21, 2014..
Poetry has spread from eighth grade to fifth and sixth. While my eighth graders are delving deeply into classics such as Poe's "Annabel Lee," my younger students are having fun learning about different forms of poetry. My sixers reviewed haiku and diamonte and were introduced to cinquain. My fivers are continuing to build their INB's by adding poetry foldables. This was their favorite foldable of the week. Click on the pic if you'd like a copy to use with your students.
Speaking of poetry here are some finished projects where my kiddos created a SQUIGGLE masterpiece (from Thinking Outside of the Box: Exercising Creative Minds) then wrote either a cinquain or acrostic poem about it.
And speaking of INB's... I just began using these little gems with my kiddos this year.
Do you use Interactive Notebook Foldables with your classes? What has been your experience with them? Yea or Nay?
Now it's your turn for a Throwback.
