Writing Camp: Poetry

In this week-long camp, students learn to write different types of poems. This camp meets first grade writing standards, but is a great way for any youngster to keep writing muscles intact, while playing with words, rhythm, and structure!

Class Experience

Some goals of this camp are...
- to utilize rhythm to vary how poems can sound
- to write poems about ordinary things by noticing unique qualities
- to select specific vocabulary to enhance one’s poem
- to use personification and the five senses
- to utilize developmentally appropriate spelling habits 
I taught poetry units in my first grade classroom for the past six years. This writing camp mimics the Writing Workshop that I teach in the classroom as well. 
Students are encouraged to write one additional poem for homework before the next class. 
About 5- 15 extra minutes daily outside of class. 
- a pen/pencil - printed writing paper (1-3 pieces per class).... - or just blank paper, and a parent can draw in lines
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is continually, informally assessed.  I invite you to send your child's writing pieces to me so I can offer feedback. 
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
