Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
This is an interactive poetry unit perfect for 1-2 grades. I introduce a poem as a mini lesson and sing the song a couple of times and teach motions to the songs. We sing the song during clean up or when I am calling them to the rug. I ask them to meet me at the rug before we finish the song/poem.
Included: 4 Poems
Poems with a place to illustrate
*Introduce the poem in a station. Teach them visualization or 'movie in their head.' They have been singing the song, and so know it somewhat. This enables them to 'read' the poem or at least part of it. They should practice reading it, then illustrate the poem, 'draw the movie in their head.'
Poems can be cut apart and placed in order with a guide sheet to refer to
*Give students a copy of the guide poem. There is a copy of the poem all mixed up. They need to cut it all apart and then place it in order. Once it is put in order, they student then reads/sings it. (You can hear their little voices singing the song as they put it in order)
(Optional idea I do, not included) Place these same poems on sentence strips, laminate and put in a pocket chart for them to put in order. In stations, I have them take turns pretending to be the teacher. Their 'students' come up one at a time to put the next strip in the pocket chart! They love this. This is not included. Sentence strips cannot be made in this forum. :)
