#academic In this 3 day mini writing camp, students will learn to write 3 various styles of fun poetry, and then use visual, artistic expression to enhance their original poetry, culminating in their own mini, summer-themed poetry journal.

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Homework Offered
Students may have homework after class to practice a new style of poetry we learned in class, or to finish creating an artistic response to a completed poem. This would be coloring or drawing a picture to enhance and respond to their poetry.
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
For each class, students will need:
Specified worksheets that will be attached to the classroom prior to each class, or their own lined paper 
Plain, blank paper for sketching or coloring
Basic coloring supplies of your choice such as markers, crayons, colored pencils/pens, or even paints. 

Worksheets by Day: (If you are unable to bring the worksheets, please bring several sheets of lined paper for writing.)

Day 1: Three Tanka Worksheets

Day  2: Three Hyperbole Worksheets

Day  3: Four Onomatopoeia Worksheets

*Worksheets were created specifically for this camp, and will be very helpful for the students in class.

** Based upon the needs of the group, I may need to add or change a worksheet, but all changes will be posted to the classroom prior to each class, and will not be a regular occurrence. 
One new poetry style will be introduced in each class. Students will learn about the new style, explore examples, have the opportunity to write and illustrate their own original poetry in each class, and have a share time at the end of each session.

 There will be worksheets available for each class meeting, and will be attached to our classroom. Students can print these prior to class and bring them to their respective sessions. If a student is unable to print the class materials, they will need to bring a few sheets of their own lined paper to write on during the independent writing portion of each class. 

Students need to come prepared with all necessary supplies, including pencils, erasers, and either worksheets or lined paper for each class, as well as basic coloring supplies. (Please see the materials list.)  I ask that students write and practice new poetry styles in pencil only during class. 

It is to the benefit of all students to participate in the brainstorming and discussion activities in these classes. Each student will be given the opportunity to share their poetry aloud, but it will not be mandatory. 
Students may also share their poetry via post in our classroom after class. 

We will use markers, crayons, colored pencils/pens, or paints to create colors, images, or drawings in response to our personal poetry each day. Students will be encouraged to freely create and share if they choose to. 

Students will be encouraged to show respect and kindness towards one another’s original works and creations. Kindness and encouragement are valued in my classroom. Each student should feel safe, free, and respected. Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated, and will be addressed appropriately. 

* This camp needs a minimum of two students to run.
