Have you ever wanted to run your own CONTEST to fit the needs of YOUR students? Now you can.
This exciting poetry contest with the 5 word challenge puts it one step above any regular contest and is what you are missing in your classroom. Challenge your younger students into becoming Poets. Give the experience of registering and competing in a real poetry contest. This contest can be done as a class or you can get your whole division involved. An easy rubric makes it enjoyable to fairly judge the students work and choose top poets. All participants receive a certificate of participation. What an excellent assessment piece.
Our school is offering the winners a book of Poetry from our local book store. I have included the option of an Earth Day Theme because we are doing this contest in honor of Earth Day and National Poetry Month.
