Wednesday Words of Wisdom – February 20, 2013

the voice - Shel Silverstein - Could use a poem to inspire a piece of art work. A second section could be first creating a piece of art, then writing a poem to go with it.

Sight word poems - Could change it up for Gr 1 by having the kids suggest their own animals (for all but the bee!) and draw or attach pictures to go with their ideas eg. I am not a walrus; I am not a bee; I am not an elephant; I am me!
