Thanks for stopping by! I wanted to share a little poetry activity we did today. I wasn't really sure if it was going to be successful or not, but the kids proved me wrong. These kids are amazing little writers and poets! I decided to try writing chants today and to go along with the whole dandelion thing, I had the kids write about what they wished for. I saw a similar idea on pinterest with a neat craft connection, so I can't take credit for the original idea. I did have to change things up a bit, but I think it worked!!
First we brainstormed things that we wished for and created a chart to refer to later. Then the kids wrote a rough draft with "I wish" at the beginning of each section of the chant. We did some peer editting, and wrote a final piece. The fun part came next. I traced each kiddo's profile on black paper. You should have heard the giggles!! :) They cut them out and glued them to a blue background. Then we created the dandelion in the seed stage with just sticks and yarn. I think they turned out great!! PHEW!

Do you have a list of 'chants' you use to teach chants? I want to do this with my 2nd graders but I want some chants to introduce.ReplyDelete
