Here are two poems about summer. I think the students would like these and could make some self to text connections. Then they could write a response.

I would also have a couple of thought provoking questions for them to think about as they read/listen to poem
For ex: what do you think the author's purpose was?
How does the poet use imagery to help you undertand his message?
You may want to discuss one or two poetic elements beforehand and how peotry is dfferent from reading a passage. Maybe you can even find a book that is written like a poem.. I think The Rain Dance is one that I used..
Good luck

Opps ..it's called the water dance

The Interview went GREAT!!!

Ladies, thank you so much for your advice - the interview went GREAT! I based my lesson on Making Connections - Text to Self using one of the poems from the website that was suggessted "Cannon Ball".

To start, I posted my reading and writing obj. along w/some making connections and text to self posters on the board. After I was introduced, I had the students come sit on the floor with me and began my lesson. I started off by telling the students that we were going to talk about Making Connections and asked each (there were 5 students attending summer school) what it meant to them. I made some Text to self posters and taped them to the board. Then I went on to tell them about the movie "Karate Kid" and how Donaldson's character got mad at Mr. Miogi (sp) because he had him doing all of this painting and washing and he was there to learn karate. And how Mr. Miogi helped him to make the connection between doing the chores and karate. Then we talked a little about poetry and visualization and had them close their eyes while I read the poem to them. So then we discussed what they visulized. And also how did they knew that what I read to them was a poem (and they replied the rhyming at the end of some of the sentences). I noticed that there were 2 ESL students, so we discussed what cannon ball meant. And we discussed what the story reminded them of. And I told them they'd made a connection to the story. Then they went back to their seats and they reread the poem (I let them pick partners). Next we talked about Text to self tchart (what the author said and this reminds me of) and they all completed the tchart w/their partners and then we discussed the tcharts and I posted them on the board.

Next, we talked more about text to self and personal narratives and what personal narratives were and how writing about something you've read is also making a text to self connection. Based on the poem, I created three writing prompts (1. Tell about a time you were silly 2. Tell about a special time you spent at the pool or beach, and 3. Tell about your favorite summer vacation). I had each student pick which prompt they wanted to write about. Then I went over the writing plan for personal narratives
C - Character
E - Event
W - Why is the event important
S1 - Give details about the 1st event
S2 - Give details about the 2nd Event
LL - Lesson learned or how the event made you feel
Afterwards, I showed them a personal narrative plan I'd created based on writing prompt 2. And then we discussed the Personal Narrative rubric and then they wrote their plans based on the prompt they choose. Next, the students shared the PN plans they wrote. Because of time I had to end my lesson there. So I stopped w/my closure revisiting everything we did, asking questions and a final review of the tcharts. And I thanked the students and gave each of them 2 erasers and pencils (I have a stock pile of funky erasers and pencils - you know the kind they sale at Michael's and school book fairs). Through out the lesson I asked the students a lot of higher order thinking questions.

They gave me a lot of compliments on my lesson.

I live in NJ and was just laid off at the end of the school year for the 2nd time in 4 years from the same district. I've been teaching for 10 years (I've taught in Texas, NC and Jersey). Because I'm new to Jersey, I've been laid off twice in the 4 years I don't have tenure. How the heck can I get tenure if you keep laying me off?! The last time I was laid off for an entire year, I can't do another year on unemployment - my savings won't substain me for that long! So I thank you ladies for the great advice! I'll keep you updated!

Sorry ladies for the grammatical errors and duplicate sentences. I forgot to mention that I wasn't feeling well today - CRAMPS - UGH (of all times - I had to fight back the pain during the lesson). I know TMI! lol Anyway, I came home and went to sleep and just woke up and wanted to give an update.
