Product Description
POETRY WRITING and READING - 24 sessions total - - SMART Version

NOTE: The preview and thumbnails are just a FEW slides from one session of this unit, but all the files follow the same format with Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, MidWorkshop Teaching Point, and Share.

NOTE: I am bundling the reading and writing together in this unit because they are meant to be taught together (e.g., Session 8 of reading and Session 8 of writing on the same day). This worked out very well for me and my kids. It was a very structured way to extend our ELA time to understand, practice, and create/revise our writing to show proficiency with the skill of the day.

NOTE: Your kids will need to have a poetry notebook. I used a notebook with blank (no lines) sheets so they could create in whatever form they like. This is something for you to consider.

While this is not a Lucy Calkins unit, the lessons follow the Lucy Calkins and Teachers Reading and Writing College (TCRWP) “workshop” format. If you have that curriculum in your school and want to have something to supplement it that provides a structured approach to how to write poetry, this is the unit for you!

This unit covers a lot of the figurative language CCSS standards and the more expressive forms of creative writing along with trying to write as poets do with intentional line breaks, line spacing, verses, etc. It also covers the reading standards that deal with themes, messages, language, etc.

NOTE: This version is for SMART Notebook users. If you can’t open the preview file, you won’t be able to use this version. HOWEVER - there is a PDF version that has been asked for and I have made available. Just search for the same title and you’ll see the PDF version, too. I have priced both the same - even though the PDF version is not editable. I spent the same amount of time creating both versions and, in fact, had to go through an extra step to create the PDF.

This is an ideal unit for teachers that will be on extended leave and want to have something for the substitute to teach that will require minimal prep time. If your kids are familiar with the “workshop” format, they’ll fit right in.

NOTE: The preview file and thumbnails only represent a few of the slides from one of the sessions. Each session has the full range of slides. These are only meant to show you the quality of the product you will purchase.

As part of the unit, you’ll get a scoring rubric for both teacher and student, all the charts for each session, and everything you need to start teaching the unit the day you purchase it.

NOTE: There are many Calkins units of studies that I have created in the same format for Reading and Writing for 3rd and 5th grade (the grades I have taught): These units are either available now or will be by August 15, 2016, Make sure to “follow” me and I will be sending out updates as more become available. But check back often, too, as sellers are only able to send out updates to buyers once a month. Links to most of the units can be found below.

The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Independent Work, and Share. Each of these sections have a different background color and are identified on most slides in the upper right portion of the slide.

Because many of the components are visual and the verbiage is written on the screen, this is ideal for classrooms with hearing impaired or deaf students. Interpreters will be grateful because they can point to the the words and get a break from signing.

NOTE: The preview and thumbnails are just a FEW slides from one session of this unit, but all the files follow the same format with Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, MidWorkshop Teaching Point, and Share.

Comments and questions are always appreciated.
