Boo Haikus! 2021

Posted in displays and deco, fifth grade, holiday, how to, picture book lesson, poetry, technology, and writing

Last week, in the Jackson Library, fifth graders had fun writing spooky haikus! This idea is from the book, Boo! Haiku. To get our brains warmed up, I showed the kids some student samples from a couple of years ago and then had them draw a spooky scene.  Thinking about how to describe the scene helped the kids to get ideas for their haiku. The bilingual classes chose to write in English or Spanish. Other helpful tips:  scatter spooky words1 on the tables as vocabulary enhancers, don’t ‘require’ use of the form/template- many kids wanted to write their poem rough draft right next to their drawing… Check out their spoooky creations!

Go Formative

Posted in apps, assessment, fourth grade, holiday, poetry, technology, and TTESS 1819

Fourth graders came to the library this week to explore different formative assessments. Yesterday we tried Pear Deck but it isn’t ideal for the library in that each student has to log in to his/her Google account and we have to share iPads (work in pairs). So today we tried GoFormative and loved it! I gave each pair of students a Pokemon character’s name on a card and that was their login. Then I gave them all the same password. I set up the class in advance on the site and I took screenshots of a Google Slides presentation I had ready about spooky poems. Then I entered the questions in GoFormative. I like all of the media possibilities- you can import a pdf, video, ask them to draw something on the screen, use multiple choice, audio, etc. I also like how the students can answer at their own pace. In the settings, I marked the choice for ‘after student submits.’ It will be interesting to see how this lesson goes the rest of this week!

Reading Comprehension of Literary Text/Poetry:  Students make inferences and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of poetry and provide evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to explain how the structural elements of poetry (e.g., rhyme, meter, stanzas, line breaks) relate to form) (e.g. lyrical poetry, free verse).

Boo! Haiku

Posted in augmented reality, fourth grade, holiday, poetry, and writing

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!
