We celebrated National Poetry Month with all grade levels. Second grade students wrote a “Never” poem which features repetition and alliteration. We used a template I found on WriteShop.com (https://writeshop.com/writing-a-never-poem). The students used dictionaries & thesauri to find words if they got stuck for ideas.
Recorded Poems on Flipgrid
I used Flipgrid so the students could record themselves reading their poem. This gives them an authentic audience and practice reading aloud. I also shared this on the school’s Facebook page to further widen the audience and let parents see what their children are doing.
