Action Poems

  Here's what we did:                       Click here to see our work.

The students, as a class, brainstormed as many verbs as they could think of, with all verbs recorded on the SMART Board or whiteboard.
Each child chose a different verb.
The students were introduced to the poetry template and discussed how to make the poem interesting.
Every student wrote a rough draft on lined paper.  Then, with teacher assistance, they revised and edited their writing.

The students used the final copy sheet to write their poem and draw a picture that matches their poem.

These are put together to create a class book.
