Reflection: Poetry: Writing Diamontes - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Aside from helping them understand what participles are, students need the most support in choosing topics that are opposites of each other. Many will choose boys/girls or winter/summer, as I did, but there are many more creative topics that can work with this type of poem. Some fun ideas include kids/adults, brothers/sisters, young/old, dogs/cats, day/night, etc. It’s good to encourage students to write about things they know a lot about and enjoy so that they can easily think of the words they will need, and also so the class poems will have a range of topics.
