PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Most teachers do some kind of activity the first day of school to help students get to know one another. I offer you a fun and productive way by writing a simple poem in “Getting-to-Know-You Diamante” by Melissa J. Donovan.

Besides a fun way for students to tell all about themselves, the process of thinking about and writing the poem asks for higher-level thinking skills of analyzing oneself and designing a form which depicts such. This wonderful seven-lined poem also:

• reinforces adjectives (introductory or review)
• reinforces “ing” verbs (introductory or review)
• reinforces better word choices
• reinforces character traits (introductory or review)
• provides a keepsake for parents
• provides a wonderful bulletin board, “Getting to Know Us!”

Provided within product, please find:

• author’s diamante example—written as a sixth grader
• modeling examples
• guided practice steps, prompts, and examples
• diagram of each line-by-line requirement
• graphic organizer for brainstorming
• bulletin board idea
• templates and framing

An added benefit of teaching this poem to your students is its structure may be used again and again throughout the year to reinforce other concepts.

I hope you enjoy, and have a great year! Melissa J. Donovan
