Reflection: Intervention and Extension Revising for Rhyming - Section 3: Independent Practice

 

Many students were just adding rhyme to add it, not to deepen the meaning of their poem. Therefore I interrupted their writing (as a whole class) and had them jot next to the rhyme the meaning of it. If they couldn't I had them write down a two column chart, "What I really want to say/words to rhyme to help me say it." They then did partner work in order to get ideas for deep meaning. 

Also, see my reflection in which I used this small group sheet for students who were ready to study iambic pentameter. 

  Don't just ryhme, add meaning everytime! :)
