a poem a week

I do at least one poem a week with my 1/2 class for shared reading. We spend a few minutes each day reading it as part of our shared reading. On Friday they get a copy to put into their "Poetry Folder." It's a folder with the metal prongs in the middle. I give them about 20 minutes to do a response. They can write their own poem; draw their mental image; write a personal connection they have with the poem- a personal narrative; generate a list of facts related to the topic of the poem...I think that's it- I can't think of anything else. They come up with great responses! And then when it's time for them to write their own poems (in April) they already have a lot of exposure to all kinds of poems. Just make sure they don't all rhyme!
