In the Classroom: A Sublime Rhyme

Britt Kaufman spent the week before Christmas studying “The Night Before Christmas” with 20 second grade students at Burnsville Elementary School.  Students worked in groups to understand and emphasize the auditory nature of hearing and finding rhymes.  They worked together to form rhyming couplets and then selected their favorites to edit, revise, and improve the quality of their writing.  Britt typed up the best rhymes into a poem and added clip art for students to color.
