5th Grade Poets, Part 2
May 01 2016 - 04:37:00 pm
(Did you miss Part 1 of our Book Spine Poetry? Click April 2016 at the right!)

The rest of our 5th grade poets created their #BookSpinePoetry on Friday, and I've shared some of it below!

This activity is always fun because it requires a very different kind of creativity. Students have to see connections between seemingly unconnected titles, and create a story, scene or character out of them. It's not as easy as it seems, but it is fun and stretches our brains!  I think 5th graders are perfect Book Spine Poets, because they're not afraid to play with the titles. They try and re-order and begin again, and finally come up with some really interesting poems! What do you think? #KleinWrites
