I realized today that I have 17 more instructional days. When you take out Science Day, Sports Day, Awards Day etc., it’s even less than that. And in this time, I need to teach an entire poetry unit and finish up my seasons/weather unit. Ummmmm…… So, I decided it’s time to integrate! This afternoon, I put together a quick, little poetry journal for my kids to write poems surrounding around seasons. Today we read some poems by Shel Silverstein – my absolute favorite poet for kids. Tomorrow we’re going to read a few seasons books I got a while back, and then they are going to start their Seasons Poetry Journals. Looking for something like this for the final days of your school year? Grab a free copy from Google Docs and have fun!
BTW – I’d love to know how many days everyone else has left, feel free to leave me a comment and let me know!
