A bunch of my blogging friends have gotten together to ring in April with some fun poetry ideas and freebies for you, our readers and followers. If you want to start at the beginning at Line Upon Line Learning, click on the picture below.
Poetrees is perfect for both reading and science.
The book has poems about tree parts, certain kinds of trees, and even some imaginary trees. While I was reading the poems, I even learned a few things! Did you know that the outer bark on a tree is dead? Or that wide rings mean slow growth? I love how students can learn so much from poems in this book!
The book reminded me of a poetry writing activity that our fifth grade teacher does with her class. Her class makes a "poet-tree" each month. She has taken a large branch from a tree and put it in a pot in her classroom. Each month, students write poems on shapes and hang them on the tree. Here is a picture of her poet-tree, done at the beginning of the year. Each apple has a poem on it, written by the students in her class.
