Class Experience

Learners will :
•	learn and practice the writing process. 
•	learn how to use a graphic organizer to brainstorm ideas.
•	practice using nouns, verbs and adjectives.
•	learn the structure and format of each poem (List Poem and Color-Shape Poem)
•	learn how to collaborate with others.  
•	begin to develop self-confidence in creative writing and public speaking.
•	begin to develop an appreciation/interest in poems and poetry writing. 
My teaching experiences and professional development training over the past 35 years have helped me build a treasure chest of ideas, materials and methods to guide children through the writing process. I have taught language arts in all elementary grades—many years with children in grades K-3. Children at these ages are learning to read and write simultaneously. I am passionate about building a child’s confidence in a safe, friendly environment. Small class size and individual attention are also key components for success. 

Nothing warms my heart more than seeing a child excited and proud to read a story or poem that he/she has written! Creative writing is more fun when we focus on getting our thoughts and ideas on paper first. During the editing part of the process is when we will concentrate on the conventions of spelling, punctuation, etc.  
There is a possibility that learners may be asked to think of ideas for the topic of their poem if we do not have time in Class 1. This will NOT be a written assignment.  Learners will have time in Class 2 to complete this task if needed.  

After our 2 week course, I encourage learners to continue writing ideas and poems when inspiration strikes them!  Extension activities are listed on the parent reference sheet.
