Fourth graders came to the library to write fun, spooky poems full of imagery. After reading Caswell and Shea’s Boo! Haiku book, the kids created their own spooky-themed poems. They had to choose a topic and then had to describe it well enough so someone could guess the topic. I made a fun interactive bulletin board of these so the kids in the school could guess the topics. What great writers we have at Jackson!
LT: 16 G: Writing/Literary Texts: I can compose poems that convey sensory details using the conventions of poetry (genre characteristics and craft).
