Extended Practice • Each table will receive a mystery bag. Try to see this item as a poet would see it, “in a fresh new way” • Each table will have 3 minutes(ish) to do the following (2nd graders would get about 10 minutes, and fewer objects). • Observe (looks like, sounds like, feels like) • Discuss with partner • WRITE (lists, phrases, sentences, poems . . .) ?
Independent Practice • About 10 minutes • add more ideas to create a poem you would want to share with a partner • Draw illustrations, sometimes illustrations can give us more to write about Reason: This is another opportunity for me to conference with students and ask them about their writing
