This activity includes Gary Soto's "Oranges," 3-2-1 writing warm-up activity, and writing assignment specifications. This poem activity focuses on students describing a specific childhood memory. I give my students the option of writing about a good or bad memory, though I specify all memories should be school-appropriate.
I really enjoy this activity because I really get to know my students and what is important to them.
