As promised, here's a great poetry prediction activity you can use in your classroom! If you grab it, let me know!
I used this on Friday with my K-2 intervention group. We have 8 intervention groups that run for minutes every morning.
They are combined K-2 so we can pool our teacher resources. I have three K and about 30 1st and 2nd graders in my group. We work on deeper comprehension strategies and it has been so fun.
We've been doing it for about 2 months now and really liking it. So, my group started by just talking about books. Then we mastered the "somebody-wanted-but-so" summary and now we're working on making and supporting predictions.
It is 6 "what am I" poems and a recording sheet for students to write their guesses and support them with proof from each poem. It was fun and interesting for me to see the difference in the thinking between the three grade levels!
My K kiddos didn't quite get the "proof" thing, but the 1st and 2nd graders did well on that! Not having taught K before, being with the three littles that are in my intervention group has been fun!
No more rambling- here is the file: I'm having sales at my TpT and TN shops too! I can't believe that I have followers especially because I just celebrated ! I'm slowly but surely building up my TpT shop TN has much more stuff on it right now.
If I were more organized I'd have contacted some of my bloggy friends to help me to a huge giveaway I'd love a happy note if you enjoy it!
