Composing Cinquain Poems: A Quick-Writing Activity.
The quick-writing activity described in this lesson plan guides grades K-2 students to write a simple cinquain as a follow-up to a subject they have been exploring in class. During the one 60-minute lesson, students will: write a poem about another topic, using the cinquain graphic organizer or outline; use words learned in the current thematic unit in poems they write. The instructional plan, a list of web resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. Six cinquain graphic organizers and a cinquain reflections sheet are attached. (PM)
