All Together Now: Collaborations in Poetry Writing. [Lesson Plan].
When children hear, write, and recite poetry, they understand more deeply the qualities of verse--the importance of sound, compactness, internal integrity, imagination, and line. Students' working collaboratively on poetry helps provide a safe structure for their creativity. This lesson plan for a unit on collaborations in poetry writing intended for grades K-2: cites subject areas, time required, and skills developed; provides an introduction; presents learning objectives; poses guiding questions; gives tips to teachers preparing to teach the lesson; suggests (and delineates) three classroom activities; offers suggestions for extending the lesson; lists print and Web resources; addresses standards alignment; and provides several poetry templates.
