Hello all! Happy Saturday!
Today I spent some time trying to get the hang of this whole Teachers Pay Teachers store thing a magiggy... It seems like it is an easy task to set things up, but I must really be an OLD DOG in the computer category because it felt like it took me FOR-EVVA to get it together.
Anywhoo.. please go over to my TpT for a visit and check out my FREEBIE!
It is a printable for a Didn't Do Poem..<If you click on the picture below it will take you to my TpT store too>
This activity is something I teach at the beginning of the school year, but I use it frequently throughout the year for a variety of tasks.
Basically I have my middles tell me all about the things they DIDN'T get to do over the summer, and then add in some of the things they DID get to do. It is a fun twist on a "What I did over Summer Vacation" kind of thing.
Then, throughout the school year I bring back the poem, especially when we are dealing with an antagonist at the end of a story or novel. I have them write the poem from the antagonist point of view. The get a chance to share what they felt the antagonist didn't get to do, and then what they actually did within the story.
I think the poem could be used in science and social studies as well. If you really want to stretch your creativity, you could find a way to add it to math with decimals, fractions and percents, or expressions and equations with inequalities.
Anyway.. PLEASE visit my TpT store and download my very first item, and leave me some LOVE. May I please ask you to follow me as well if you choose to download... AND leave me a comment or two here to let me know what you think.
Thanks to Krista Wallden at Creative Chalkboard for her borders too!
GO GATORS!! Woot Woot!
