Even though it's almost 100 degrees here, I'm pretending it's fall and having a super fall sale this weekend at my TPT store, along with all the other bloggers participating in Casey's Second Grade Math Maniac's Fall Sale TPT Blog Hop!

One of the things the teachers did is to glue the poem into the students' readers' notebooks. Then they took the poem and color-coded these structures in it. From there, they took one of the poems and cut it apart to glue into the "examples" section.
Do you like my poetree? lol I crack myself up.
This chart is an anchor for the different forms of poetry. This one is a tough one for kids & teachers, I've noticed. (Technically, there are three types of poetry, but we don't work with the dramatic form, so I kept it down to 2, even though three may have been prettier.)
If you notice, there are some weird lines clearly from the back of the paper that criss-cross throughout the poetree. That's because I had to sketch it more than once to make it look right. Cut me some slack, ok? I'm sleepy.

P.S. I don't feel guilty about going to the bathroom whenever I want. I still only use perk this maybe once or twice a day. But it makes me happy.

TIP: Buy rollos that are in rolls. I went the cheap(er) way out and had to glue my rollos together first. About a third of the way through, I remember thinking, "Whose stupid idea was this?!" and I was not happy with whoever that was. I also considered just giving people tubes of glued-together rollos and kisses instead of making them into pencils, bt I thought that might be weird.
Finally, upon nearing the home stretch,
I was proud and happy.
P.S. - after the fact - they were a hit. People DO like candy.
