Product Description

        Here are some activities to develop vocabulary using Arctic Animals as a theme.  If your students need background information, National Geographic has a collection of short videosabout many of these animals.  Most videos run two to three minutes.  I highly recommend previewing them for your particular group, because some are graphic.

            The first page has a collection of vocabulary words from a study of the Arctic habitat.  The next two pages are sorting sheets for number of syllables and parts of speech.  Students can cut and paste the words or write them. The final page lists two poetry forms and a sample of each.

            When I introduce a new poetry form to my students, I show them several examples.  For additional examples of these and other poetry forms, visit Poems of Silliness – my poetry blog.  The poems are tagged by form and can be searched by topic.

As a class, I have them brainstorm a list of words or short phrases that go with a set topic.  We work through the list together creating one class poem.  Then I give some time for partners to work on the form.  Finally, I have students try the form on their own.

            I have had students share poems in a sharing circle or as a piece of artwork.  When someone reads a poem, it is traditional to snap ones fingers in appreciation instead of clapping.  My students enjoy this tradition.
