It is Term Four down here in New Zealand and we are all winding up the year with final assessments due soon, Term 4 reports to write and wrapping up our year in general. Two years ago I came across a poem in this School Journal (what a shame they are no longer to be published).
Here are a few samples from my kiddies (Dec 2011).
I didn't teach this poem again last year because I was changing levels and moving up to Y6 and my new Y6's wouldn't want to know what my Y4's learned about last year. But now that I am about to complete this year, I will do them again with my 10/11 year olds. Simply dying to see what they produce and promise to post samples for you.
If you would like to have a go at writing these great poems with your students, I have written a lesson for it which includes instructions, graphic organisers and teacher models. Student handouts are in both UK/US spelling, where needed. Please visit TPT, TNB and HML(NZ) for the lesson PDF - links below.
