Have you ever used an "I am" poem in class before? These are great poems to get your kids thinking about autobiographical traits. However, I used it a bit differently this time. My students took up a character and wrote from the point of view of the character! Come on over to my blog to read about what we did, and pick up your free grading rubric so that you can do it as well.
Hi! Welcome to my blog. My name is Stephanie and I am a 5th grade teacher. I have been teaching for 18 years (taught 2nd through 5th grades), have my Masters in Education and am Nationally Board Certified. I started this blog as a way to get some of those ideas I use in my class off my chest. Hopefully, you find them useful to you and walk away from my blog with something new to use in your classroom.
