Thirty Days of Student Poetry

20130407-093344.jpg

This week I am featuring the poems from Mr. Haines third grade class. We did research on countries using the database Culture Grams as part of their social studies. Then we took our information to craft poems as we are users and creators of information. Students used the cinquain format.

Madagascar
Big, crowded
Sports, feasts, shopping
They use banana leaves spoons.
Cool

Africa
Sunshine
Bar-b-queing, climbing trees
They use bus and taxis.

France
Far away
Lawn bowling, judo, cycling races
Mont Blanc is 15,771 feet above sea level.

Happy poetry.
Happy reading.

  1. Jone,
    A great example of using research and integrating poetry into the content areas. Can’t wait to share these with the teachers at my school! Thanks!
