Book page poetry is really neat and a great way to show creativity with older kids. This is an interesting way to teach poetry..

Holly V, elementary Art teacher says, "Calligrams are a type of poem where words or phrases are arranged to make a visual image. For this project... students draw an animal and a background. Instead of coloring it in...had the students color with words. that relate to the object. They could use single words, or full sentences." 5th grade: colored pencils or markers.

A few days ago I posted a fractured art idea. I had a go at creating an example for my relief folder, & also to see how long it would take to complete! After scrunching the paper, & starting to trace over the lines, I decided to cut the A4 paper in half! It took 30 min to trace the lines & about 45 min to colour in. Not as long as I thought it would take! Plus that time included helping my little boy with his own cutting, glueing & colouring project.

Each child got a list, clip board, pencil and one flash card (on a headband). Then the students roamed around the room reading sight words. They drew a line from their peer's name to the sight word they read off their peer's forehead. Such a cute idea. Love this idea... its like playing Clue and it can be used for any subject really... not just sight words! Definitely doing this in my classroom!
