Shared Reading

I love to use poems as my shared readings during my Daily 5 mini-lessons.  Last week we were memorizing the poem "The Chubby Snowman" and my students had a genius idea! They said we should write some fun things that we could use for the snowman's nose since it was eaten by the bunny.  THEY IS THO THO THMART! :)

So, that's what we did!  It was a little too simple of a writing (aka: fill in the blank) for my students, but they wanted to do it right then... so I whipped up a little something.  I think that maybe next week we'll write a narrative story about how they got their new nose.

I didn't like poetry much growing up, except the unit in 5th grade when we did limericks and was published in the school paper (literary section). I love teaching it though! Especially when discussing imagery, our thoughts & feelings, and creation!

Love this activity! I love seeing how one poem can be interpreted different ways.

I love your idea for students to create their own nose. I agree poems are great to share with your students. I am currently in a Children's Literature Class and asked to create a poem about the importance of sharing books and reading:
Big Books
Little Books
all kinds inbetween
Sharing is the key
Fairy tale, Classic, Legend
will you read with me?
