Includes:
-Prewriting Activity with questions to help the kids brainstorm what is unique about where they're from, how they were raised, and memories that are important to them.

-Sample "Where I'm From Poem"

Instruction: In lieu of the traditional "Meet the Teacher" PowerPoint, I used this poem I wrote to introduce myself to my students at the beginning of the year. I focused on teaching them "show not tell" sentences by having them use the details in the poem to make inferences about where I grew up and the things that are important to me.

Students used the prewriting questions to then write their own poem. They published and shared their favorite line(s) around the room. Then we always close with a discussion about how differences are meant to be celebrated and that we respect each other regardless.
