new topics:

MC left a couple of new comments on the last topic but I thought they warranted a new post:

"Okay so now that we are finished discussing apple pie, whales and curriculum...what do all of those things have in common??? A serious question... has anyone had a huge amount of success using literature circles?"


"Also... what is the most powerful, unique poetry activity you have experienced or taught...
looking for new ideas..."

Ok, lets talk.

  1. I have not done a great deal with literature circles, but will be next year when I can incorporate more choices into my units.

    My favorite poetry activity is when we listen to poetry - usually I play Metallica - and then they have to go find examples of poetry terms in song lyrics. I print all of them out and post them all over the room. The kids seem to enjoy it, even though it is much more difficult than it looks!
