Reading Investigations: Seasonal Poetry

  • Today’s reading investigation: Fall investigations. Once you have discussed what the titles above might be above, invite everyone to go to the EPIC reading link (provided above under the above slide). This could be a family investigation or an individual reading opportunity.
  • Family Sharing: What did you discover today about the fall season?” *Invite everyone to share. Discuss which book was chosen.
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or 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.
  • Next: Allow everyone 10-15 minutes to put their thoughts on paper about either the book they read on EPIC or to copy the poem from the slide. Allow everyone 10-15 minutes to put their thoughts on paper about… This is a great moment to check their spelling and their penmanship (proper letter formation including the ascenders and descenders placement). Inspire them to value their penmanship. When they put their thoughts on paper, it becomes an individual representation to an audience (reader). Their penning of their thoughts becomes the only representation of their personal connections, learning, and or creations. Ask them: “Are you satisfied with today’s writing? Could it be hung in a museum?”
  • Skill Discussion: Let’s share what you’ve penned!” Encourage every to share… including your youngest. Spend a few moments sharing what you remember about the seasons changing (your favorite memories, what you look forward to, what you enjoy doing together).
