In the Classroom: Waxing Poetic

At Clearmont Elementary School, Britt Kaufmann substituted for Mrs. Deyton’s 1st grade class and they spent the day waxing poetic.  First Britt read poetry aloud and they reviewed and memorized a poem from the previous sub day.  Then students worked on creating their own poems using magnetic poetry.  At the end of the day the class talked about ‘describing’ details by paying attention to their five senses and using these senses to describe their 1st grade experience.  At the end of the day they voted for their favorite descriptions to make a poem.
