Every four weeks students will be given a new poem. They will become familiar
with these poems and their poets over the course of the year. What do they do with the poem? They memorize it, rewrite and illustrate it, and provide a short biography
of the poet. The FUN thing is the students determine what grade they receive. If you they it in Week 1 = they get an A. If they say it in Week 2 = they get a B. If they say it in Week 3 = they get a C. If they say it in Week 4 = they get a D. They choose their grade based on their drive and ambition. A 22-page Student Instruction PowerPoint is included as well as a 12-page Teacher Instruction PowerPoint. Sixteen suggested poems included are: *The Naming of Cats, *If, My Shadow, *Sonnet 43, Caged Bird, All Things Bright & Beautiful, The Road Not Taken, Trees, O Captain My Captain, A Visit From St. Nicholas, *Hey Black Child, Little Boy Blue, October's Party, Mother to Son, *Nancy Hanks, and Paul Revere. The Teacher Instructions include exciting activities I do with *five* of the poems. This is a YEAR LONG (every four weeks) activity and the kids love it.
