|I'd share, but not all of the clip art is "free" :(|
Before I set my little ones loose with this organizer we had a group discussion that tied back to the beginning of our writing unit- how to see with poets' eyes, and how that requires an author to use his/her imagination as well as their knowledge. I started off by modeling and then they shared their ideas. Here are our thoughts from that conversation.
I was really happy with how this organizer got my students thinking about poetry in different ways and on a different level.
How do you guide students' reflections? Do you have a favorite thinking organizer?
