Poetry journals

A new addition for me this year is the added section of 'poetry' into the back half of our math journal spirals. I am in love and have no idea how I survived without it before. We are able to have so many mini lessons and reader's theater opportunities each week. I have been picking and choosing our poems from this packet.

Each week, I have videotaped the groups presenting their poem to the class. What great practice for them, getting used to being in front of a group, working on body language and voice, among other things. The best part is going back and watching each group's video as a class, giving encouragement and advice along the way. How do you work poetry into your week?
