Word Sort Chart Duration Five 45-minute lessons Anticipatory Set Students will write a four-line poem for their Daily Journal activity.
Teacher will explain how different types of poetry can convey the same meanings, only the structure is different.
Teacher will then read one example of each type of poetry (cinquain and diamante).
Teacher will discuss the goals and objectives of the lesson. Instructional Input Teacher will lecture on cinquain and diamante poetry.
Teacher will present multiple samples of cinquain and diamante poetry to students.
Teacher will present students with charts and brainstorming activity sheets to aid in creating cinquain and diamante poetry. Modeling Teacher will create, in class, her own cinquain and diamante poems.
Students will take turns providing information to produce examples of cinquain and diamante poems. Checking for Understanding During class discussions (especially the creation of the class poem), anecdotal notes and observation can be used to monitor understanding of spelling patterns, parts of speech, and vocabulary.Use the word-sort activity to assess student comprehension of gerunds.Check final versions of the students' poems for application of new learning of parts of speech, diamante structure, and spelling patterns.
After students have shared their cinquain with the class, students could reflect on their own and their classmates' poems.While students work, use kidwatching techniques to observe and monitor students' progress. Guided Practice Once you and your students establish the characteristics of a cinquain, students can use the Student Reproducible Cinquain Graphic Organizer to compose original poems of their own. Students can work individually, with partners, or in small groups. Once students have finished their poems, the cinquains can be shared with the entire class.
Students will compose their own diamante poems on a subject of their choosing. Students will use the Diamante Brainstorming worksheet, as well as the Diamante Poems interactive writing tool as guides. Students will work individually, and use peer review prior to sharing the poems with the class. Individual Practice Students will utilize handouts to create at least one of each type of poem (cinquain and diamante) for homework.
Daily Journal activities will be focused on discovering exciting words to use in our poetry-writing.
Daily Journal activities will also focus on identifying the parts of speech of teacher-selected words. Closure/Assessment This past week’s lesson was not only to allow you to compare and contrast poetry structure, but to assess your knowledge of specific parts of speech.
