Learning from students: Free verse

Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series. 

Here, Mary got the students involved in PowerPack 9 of Here We Go and they had fun with it.

First, she tried the PowerPlay activity with students. They drew pictures and made lists of their favorite foods.

Then she created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in the PowerPack. Here is a digital postcard for the anchor poem by Joseph Bruchac.

Then, she shared the response poem a student wrote in relation to the mentor text poem.

Finally, Mary also recommended an additional resource book of food-related poetry and a helpful website that students might enjoy in her final slide:
