Nature

I am always amazed at what can be produced with the Window Frame Poetry organizer  when used with a photograph. A colleague shared one with us. When I use it in class I usually ask my students to choral read their poems. All students read a line from the same box and continue with each of the other boxes. This makes the choral reading enticing and the repeated ‘theme’ shows emphasis.

Trees and twigs relying on each other

Sunshine seeping through

Togetherness, reliance a warm feeling

Distant birds chirping, announcing their existence

What else lives here?

Crunchy leaves, twigs, togetherness, a warm feeling.

  1. Sounds like a good way to help students to stir up thoughts and frame them into a poem. I like that the organizer is like a window frame for the picture.

  2. This is a perfect prompt for all the calendar pages I’ve saved over the years. I love how you use the choral reading to share. Is there any way you could share a printable link to the window frame organizer?
