I called to check on my jury duty status - like how long will I be there, what kind of snacks to bring, no children - right?, and that kind of thing. I started with "I'm a homeschool mom of 8" - the judge's secretary put me on hold and came back and told me I was excused by the judge! Wow - I've never had that response before :-)
Anyway, back to the regularly scheduled rant about my writing class. GLUP! I'm now going to be teaching tomorrow!! (of course, I usually don't prepare until the day before... see comment "I'm a homeschool mom of 8" above) We're currently working in the All Things Fun & Fascinating by IEW. But, covering Christmas poetry should be a fun day.
Off to my friend - Pinterest. I found wonderful, FREE templates for each of our Christmas poetry types, and they are too good not to share with you!
Christmas Acrostic: Take the word "Christmas" and create a poem with each letter. (If you're on my Christmas card list...I want you to know I had this idea loooong before I saw this lesson!)
Christmas Cinquain: A poem of syllables. Cute template with instructions
Christmas Senses Poem: Describe Christmas with a line for each sense.
A couple of ink cartridges later, I'm ready for class, and with cute printables! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
