This poetry is especially appropriate as students begin or end the school year.

"When I was little, I could hardly do anything. But now I can do lots of things, like braiding my own hair and going to nursery school. I'm not a baby anymore. I'm me!"

In the book WHEN I WAS LITTLE Jamie Lee Curtis captures a little girl's celebration of herself. This view of growing up is perfect for readers of ALL ages.

This story encourages children to examine their own physical, social, AND academic growth.

Children respond to specific questions. They are asked to consider important personal change. They use the information to design a poem. The resulting poetry provides many “aha” moments. Students write with voice, humor, and intelligence.

Included:

An introduction page
A quote for analysis, discussion, and debate
A graphic organizer with specific student questions
A list of verbs (giving students specific vocabulary to work with)
A draft poetry template
A final draft poetry template
Illustrations to display alongside the poems
A bulletin board sign
