I Skyped with Leigh Anne Eck’s 4th- and 5th-grade students recently as part of their SPARK Camp. The students had been writing wordplay poems based on the lesson plan I shared here.
Besides talking with them a bit about where my ideas come from and what my writing process looks like, I also got to hear some students read their work. I LOVE that part of Skyping–hearing the creative poems that students make is one of my favorite things. And best of all, Leigh Anne shared them online in a very cool gallery. Just visit her blog post to see a few student creations (or go straight to the complete poem gallery here!
Thank you, Leeanne, for letting me visit SPARK Camp!
