Yes, that is right! You will be doing a poetry project! But, don’t worry, this will be fun! We are going to divide into groups and your group is going to write and publish your very own poem!
Form groups. I want you to, before the end of this lesson today, come up with your five favorite types of poems that you have learned about. Please tell me what your top five are when you are done!
Please get out your iTouch, copy the QR code and get ready to use your brain!
Night and Day
The stars are shining
they will shimmer and they'll glow
until the sun shines
Piles of candy
Under the bed
Make for a delicious snack
It’s been Halloween because
No one is without candy
Swimming, jumping, fishing
All the penguins jump down into the water.
There once was a lady named Sue
Who had nothing whatever to do
And who did it so badly
I thought she would gladly
Have stopped before she was through
I am a Jilly JoeI love to sail and rowI love flying kitesonly to end up with fightsMy friends hate me For I'm a wannabeI love myselfFor I'm Jilly Joe
Please get out your iTouch. I have created polls for each of your groups, based on your top five, for you to determine which type of poem you will be creating.
Please go to the link provided below and cast your vote
I have a friend that is a songwriter and he is going to come tell us all about how words work together. Listen carefully, this will help you when it is time for you to choose YOUR words!
Students, please get into your groups and pick a theme for your poem. Now that you know what kind of poem you will be creating, this is now the most important decision you will make! Choose wisely.
Today during lab time, we will go to the website http://www.wordle.net/ and create a “wordle.” This is a tool that will help you come up with words that relate to your theme. The more words the better. We will share these on Monday in class!
Today, we are going to Skype the poet Eric Ode. Eric writes songs and poems. He really enjoys talking about the writing process. Get your questions ready! We are going to interview him!
