I am sad to say last week we did not celebrate Poetry Friday! I had to make a choice because of giving diagnostics which was not a choice. So I chose not to do Poetry Friday, and I am pleased to announce that three students voiced their concern during our class meeting Friday afternoon.
"If we have to give up something, please do not choose Poetry Friday."
"I finally like poetry and so let's not give it up now."
"I was ready to sing today in Poetry Friday. Can we sing now?" Of course the answer was YES!!
So I learned a few valuable lessons. First I already have my class hooked on Poetry Friday and most of them are anxious to celebrate it. Second, their comments reinforced how much students want and need routine in our class. Finally and most exciting--- they missed it!
Thanks Laura for hosting today's Poetry roundup at Writing the World for Kids
