Jag ser engagerade elever som sitter och småpratar vid borden Jag hör ett kreativt sorl i klassrummet och pennor som rispar mot papper Jag känner koncentrationen och arbetsron Det är så här det ska vara i en skola.

Poesi och cirkelmodellen – en lysande kombination

Jag har alltid tyckt att det är lite klurigt att jobba med poesi med eleverna. När det kommer till skrivande av olika dikter brukar klassrumet vara fullt av suckar och pustar. Vånda över att man tror att det ska vara på ett visst sätt och det sättet kan man inte. Att jag själv tycker att det är klurigt är nog för att långt inne finns samma vånda gömd. Vi bär mycket med oss i in i vårt uppdrag. Men de senaste åren har det blivit bättre och gått bättre. Den här gången kombinerade jag mina tidigare efrarenheter och cirkelmodellen. Hur har vi då jobbat? Fas 1- bygga upp kunskap Vi tittade tillsammans på en presentation som vår bibliotikare visade oss. Fas 2 – läsa och undersöka texter Nu var det dags att möta massor av olika dikter. Fas 3 – skriva gemensam text Vilken lektion! Theme Poems. In this online tool, elementary students can write poems based on shapes from five different categories: Nature, School, Sports, Celebrations, and Shapes.

Theme Poems

Within these categories, 32 different shapes are included. By selecting a shape, students are learning how to focus their writing on a particular topic or theme. In addition, as part of the online tool, students are prompted to brainstorm, write, and revise their poems, thus reinforcing elements of the writing process.

Overview Featured Resources From Theory to Practice Students explore different poems written about sports by reading and listening, looking closely at the use of onomatopoeia in each piece.

Swish! Pow! Whack! Teaching Onomatopoeia Through Sports Poetry

After a discussion of the poems, students view a segment of a sporting event and generate a list of sounds used in that event. Using their lists as a springboard, students then create their own onomatopoeic sports poems, draw accompanying illustrations, and compile their work in a flip book. Back to top Sports Poetry Flip Book Project: This handout provides guidelines for students for writing and illustrating a flip book containing an original sports poem.

Flip Book: Students can publish their work using this online tool, which allows them to type and illustrate tabbed flip books up to ten pages long. In his book Boy Writers: Reclaiming Their Voices, Ralph Fletcher notes that male students are often disengaged and disenfranchised in the writing classroom. Further Reading. Great Poems to Teach.
