Discovering great poets

SI-CM2 students have started their year poetically! They will be learning about famous poets and their works this semester. The Big idea behind this is to introduce the students to some great poets as well as teach them the art of poetry writing. These selected poems will call upon students to incorporate many of the poetic techniques they are studying in the poems they are reading. As CM2 reads the selected poems, they will examine specific vocabulary associated with poetry, including stanza, verse, free verse, and narrative poem. Two weeks into the Poems Unit and students are already writing their own free verse and rhyming poems. Here is the one we wrote as a group:


FIRST DAY IN LIFE SCHOOL WAS A BIT CHAOTIC

BUT WE MET OLD FRIENDS AND MADE SOME NEW

WE ENJOYED PLAYING WITH FRIENDS IN RECESS

AND LEARNING NEW LANGUAGES

WE LOVE FOOTBALL AND BADMINTON THE BEST

AH! WE LOVE HAVING LIFE SCHOOL BACK.
