We will work in our reading groups (Graves chapter 7, 12, 13, 14; ELD/ELA “Writing Strategies”, “Writing Applications” and “Written Language and Conventions” standards K-2 and 3-5/6) after today’s break.
While you are waiting, please share the poem you brought in.
All have a story behind them
Some belie what seems to be true
Objects that elicit tears, laughter, pain, longing
Flood of memories
Who am I?
Who do I want to be?
Families, friends, strangers
Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Scott Lake, Mexico. Disneyland, Guatemala, Yosemite, Tucson, Glamis
“In our minds we store the images we gather from the time we are born, vivid fragments rooted in the five senses: the smell of mother’s milk, the texture of grandfather’s face, the terror of trees in a night storm, the sound of sirens or dogs barking sharply in the city, the smell of scallion and garlic sizzling in a wok.”
Judith W. Steinbergh
What is Green?
1Green is the grass
And the leaves of trees
Green is the smell
Of a country breeze.
2Green is lettuce
And sometimes the sea.
When green is a feeling
You pronounce it N.V.
3Green is a coolness
You get in the shade
Of the tall old woods
Where the moth is made.
4Green is a flutter
That comes in Spring
When frost melts out
5Green is a grasshopper
Green is jade
Green is hiding
In the shade—
6Green is an olive
And a pickle.
The sound of green
Is a water-trickle
7Green is the world
After the rain
Bathed and beautiful
8April is green
Every elf has
One green shoe.
1Under a grape arbor
1, 2Air is green
1, 2, 3 With sprinkles of sunlight
1, 2, 3, 4In between.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5Green is the meadow,
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6Green is the fuzz
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7That covers up
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8Where winter was.
1, 2, 5, 6Green is ivy and
3, 4, 7, 8Honeysuckle vine.
AllGreen is yours
Green is mine…
“Stake a claim on something—your desk, the classroom, the lunchroom, your bedroom. Don’t just describe what you see, but also include the sounds, smells, and feel of the place.” JoAnn Portalupi, “Priming the Pump”At your table, brainstorm a list. As a group, write a line for a class poem that uses some of your table’s ideas. Write it on a strip and put it in the pocket chart.
Table 1: What things LOOK (color)?Table 2: What things SOUND (color)?Table 3: What things SMELL (color)?Table 4: How does (color) FEEL?Table 5: What makes YOU FEEL (color)?Table 6: What things TASTE (color)?Table 7: What EXPERIENCES or IDEAS seem (color)?Table 8: Can you think of any (color) PLACES?
As a group, we will write a general statement, summary statement, or another type of ending for this color.

“At first children are caught up in their own thinking, finding it difficult to include the thoughts and opinions of others. Gradually, through the process of sharing their writing and showing it to others, they begin to acknowledge other ways of thinking. Understanding point of view is a lifetime journey in both reading and writing.”
