Fourth Grade Haiku Poems With Beautiful Images From Nature
After finding an image from nature, adding it to a document and citing it, poets wrote a haiku about the image. Some of our poets were so inspired they wrote many haiku. Step into nature with poetry!
Poets wrote a diamante poem about a cherished object or place. Then, they wrote a second diamante poem about a person associated with the object or place. Using the words of their poems, students designed a colorful word cloud.
Mrs. Keeley's Students Recite Poems
Mrs. Keeley inspired her students to check out Library poetry books and memorize a poem. A few of her students recited their poems in Library and we recorded them. Enjoy watching and listening to these terrific poets.
A common Chinese poem or “Shih" poem is four lines. Each line has five to seven syllables.
- The first line contains the initial phrase about a natural subject.
- The second line is a continuation of that subject.
- The third line turns from this subject and begins a new one
- The fourth line is the poet’s thoughts (or advice) on the subjects.
LFP Sixth Grade Book Trailers and QR Codes - 2015Posted by Frank Kleyn at 5/20/2016
Ms. Tucker and I worked together on a QR code project that involved having students write, share, and film book talks about Award Nominees/Winners. After the students filmed the book talks using iPads, we transferred the files and uploaded them to Google Drive. Once the movie is in Google Drive, we were able to create a QR code based on the URL. The QR code can be taped to the back of the book or displayed on the book’s shelf. When it is scanned with an iPad or phone, the viewer can watch an engaging video book talk. You'll find the QR codes and books in the LFP Library
