Art and Poetry

For Mothers Day, or Parents Day, the students make a flower after learning about Georgia O'Keefe.  We then weave our poems around the petals and present as gifts to our parents.  Last year, I had a parent come in to teach the students about Georgia O'Keefe.  The photo below hangs in my own dining room as it was made by my son in his teacher's second grade classroom, where the idea originated!!  Thanks to my wonderful colleague, Diane, I will now do this every year with my students.


Enjoy this FREEBIE. A bookmark containing questions based on text complexity. These have worked out great for my students!
