Inking Thoughts: Springtime Word Collecting

  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Putting your thoughts on paper means that you’ve spent some time gathering great words; word phrases woven together in an amazing image; or listened to stories… poetry… or songs that have created imaginations!
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Reading and Writing Connection: First: Using the slide above, take 5-6 minutes word collecting in your journals.
  • Drafting responses: Next: Spend sometime sharing the poems from the slide above. There are so many creative ways to write a springtime poem. Guide: each of your learners in their version of an individual springtime poem. Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Springtime Poem.“ Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
