We're more than halfway through the week! Wednesdays are great because I get to join my BBB Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday!
Today's workshop topic is writing in the content area. How do you integrate writing?
Acrostic Poems for the planets!
(These 4th grade samples are from students who are graduating this year!)
Each student became an "expert" by researching a planet. They collected information and facts to describe their planet and its features.
Writing an acrostic poem can be a challenging task when you're trying to include factual information and write phrases, not just single words. Another challenging aspect is that the students have to be creative and concise with their word choice, so the beginning letter fits their information.
These poems can be used in any content area and students enjoy writing them! After displaying them on a bulletin board, we made a class reference book.
I hope you can use this idea in your classroom! Have a great rest of the week!
