Product Description
See the entire poetry lesson by downloading the preview.

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 lesson encourages students to examine their own physical, social, and academic growth.

Children respond to specific questions asking them 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:

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
Student self-portrait
A bulletin board sign
Bulletin board lettering

A way to quickly improve student writing is "Writing Anchor Charts And Student Writing Resources."
