The December Poetry Literacy Center will have your students engaged in reading and writing poetry all month long. This center guides students through the writing process of poetry, provides a close read for each poem. Students will write haikus, diamante, cinquain and shape poems.
Each Week Contains:
New Original Poem
Close Read (with additional comprehension questions)
Writing Prompt connecting the poem to text, self, or the world.
Content Area Connection
Guided Poetry Writing
This month two additional reading passages are added to connect poetry to nonfiction reading passages. The Pearl Harbor passage will give readers the opportunity to learn more about the events of Pearl Harbor and help them understand the terminology used in the poem for that week.
The “Christmas Tree” center gives students the opportunity to learn about other winter holidays (Hanukkah, Three Kings Day, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Day, and Christmas).
And for an added BONUS - The “Winter Nights” center will have your bulletin boards ready for January.
