Goal

The goal is to foster a passion for poetry in students by giving them an opportunity to write and publish poetry and to give the poetry as a gift to their mother (or special female relative) for Mother's Day.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will receive instruction in the different types of poetry in our Spring Poetry Unit and then will be given the opportunity to write, edit and publish their poems in a hardback book that they can illustrate and give to their mother (or special female relative) for Mother's Day.  

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits of allowing students to learn, write, edit, publish and illustrate their poetry is that they take ownership in the final product. They are engaged and invested because it is a gift for a loved one. Taking them through the writing process and allowing them to create a finished product allows the students to process their knowledge about poetry in a way that they will remember. It gives them ownership and pride. I have asked for enough books that our entire third grade at Poinciana will be able to participate and benefit. This activity is excellent because it can easily be differentiated for English Language Learners and our ESE students.
