Day 21 – March SOLSC
This post is inspired by Lynne Dorfman’s post Things to do if you are a Daffodil. When she was mentioning the mentor text she used, she also noted a mentor text I use with my first graders – How to Be by Lisa Brown. We’ve only used the book as a mentor for our “how to” unit of study. So, today I’m using Lisa Brown’s How to Be as a mentor for my poem “How to be a Snowflake.” (Currently the 4th Nor’easter of the month is dropping snow as I write)
How to be a Snowflake
Dance and twirl down from the heavy clouds above
Land gracefully upon the surfaces below
Kiss and tickle the noses of everyone you meet
I’m excited to incorporate this mentor text and the one from Lynne’s blog into my First Grade Poetry unit!
I’m participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge! Thank you to the team of writers at Two Writing Teachers for this wonderful writing community. A place for us to grow together as writers.
