List Poem Template - Freebie

I was reading the book aloud Gooney Bird is So Absurd! by Lois Lowry.
These books have been a new treasure to me this year.  My colleague introduced them to me and I have fallen in love with them and so has the class.

This book is set in the month of January so I thought it would be great to read in January however, you can read it in any month.  January doesn't play a large part of the book!

However, poetry does!!!  

The kids became inspired to start writing their own poetry!  We started with a haiku!  These are challenging but they stepped up to the plate and wrote fantastic winter poems.  They typed them up in Google classroom.  I printed and laminated them and now they hang on their lockers. 
They were sad they couldn't take them home so I made booklets of the class poems and sent them home!  They were so excited to have a book of them.

This week we are writing a List Poem about our family!
I'm going to reread Malcolm's poem from the book and then use the anchor chart below to model writing a list poem about my family.

I've listed the family items I'm going to use and then come up with adjectives or adjective phrases with them to complete the poem.

I'm going to give them this template to help them write theirs.

Contraction Matchin'

Contractions can be a challenge for some.  So the more they practice they better!
This fun Write the Room Center has three different levels.  You can start with Level 1 and work your way up or choose the level that is best for your student.

This activity booklet can be used as an independent activity, in a center or even homework.  Students write the contraction in the puppy's belly and then use it in a sentence.  There is also a matching contraction worksheet.

For taking the time to read the whole post - here is a Fall S Contraction Worksheet.
It has 2 levels.

Thanks for stopping by!  Follow me on Bloglovin' and Facebook!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

WALK Comprehension Activity

Let's take a WALK!
This lesson was used as a prediction to a book.  I adapted it to fit the week of reading.
Day 1: W - Words (vocabulary)  I wrote the words for the week as we went through the story.  We also discussed syllables and word parts such as suffixes.
 Day 2: A - Author's Purpose I wrote the 3 ways of an author's purpose as a reminder. I will not write this every week.  The students then discussed with their partner and then with the whole class the purpose.  I then wrote it down.

Day 3: L - Links to the story  We have been working on the three links that readers make.  Text to Self, Text to World and Text to Text.  Text to World is difficult for them to make.  This will be more of a focus in upcoming lessons.
 Day 4: K - What we Know Students listed the items that they learned from the story.  Our stories this week were about geese.  They really enjoyed the nonfiction and the realistic fiction stories.  We combined both stories onto this one chart.
This has worked so great for the week that I am carrying it over to my guided reading groups.  Using smaller chart paper I have made a WALK chart for each book we are reading.  This chart is for a group that is reading a Level H book. Life on a Coral Reef by Scholastic.  Our school purchased nonfiction, fiction and content books of the entire set A through Z!!  I have so many options!  http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/guidedreading/
 We will be finishing this book next week and then comparing Life in the Jungle with the coral reef!!  Wow - look at all the connections!
