This week students read several poetry selections in the Houghton Mifflin 1.2 anthology. We have also been talking a lot about nouns, verbs and adjectives and leaves.
I asked each student to write a leaf poem of 7 lines. The first 3-4 lines had to be describing leaves and the last 3-4 lines had to include verbs that involved actions leaves did or things people did to interact with leaves.
They wrote and illustrated their poems in StoryBuddy.
