Bugs and Beetles... oh my!


This next week in reading it's all about BEETLES.
Actually it's about poetry but beetles are a big topic.
It is perfect timing here in Utah. 
 We've been experiencing fabulous 60-70 degree weather
 and the kids and bugs are back outside (not that we have bugs inside ;)!!


This week we are going to combine bugs and poetry in our writing and reading.
We don't get enough time to practice this writing type.
I'm using a WRITE ON set called Bugs in the Backyard to help spark some ideas and this POETRY pack to practice a few poetry forms. 


I'd love to share... if you would like to try out either product with your kids... leave a comment below with your choice... and if you have any other great resources... please share that too!
I'll choose 2 winners on Friday!!

I also posted a fun book and idea for BEETLES on Facebook... you can check it out here!

Lory, you create amazing products. I'd love to come be a fly on your classroom wall and see it all in place. Thanks for your generous heart in sharing so much. I'd love your poetry pack. I'm thinking of putting together a book of students poetry as a Mother's Day gift. mjdavis@gmail.com

The poetry pack looks great...I don't have the students write enough poetry. (We read a lot, though.) Would love a chance to win it! tokyoshoes at hotmail dot com

I would love to try the Poetry Pack! I'm passionate about poetry, but new to teaching Grade 1 (taught Grade 4 previously) and have been exploring ways to introduce different types of poetry. This would be awesome!!

This is my first visit to your blog and I am in LOVE! My second graders just started a poetry unit. The poetry set would be a great way to brighten up our work on writing area and get the kids writing poetry! abarkhymer@gmail.com

Your products are amazing! I'd love to try these resources in the classroom. My students love your task cards and I'm positive your poetry pack would be a hit as well. Thanks for all you do Lory!
