As part of the speaking and listening standards, each month students will memorize and present a self-selected poem to the class. You child may choose to do a poem we have practiced in class, a poem from one of the links below, or a poem that was found someplace else.
The poem must be published in a book or on the internet.
If poem is from "Room 25 Favorites", know the page number. If the poem is from someplace else, please email/text the poem so I can help, if needed, AND count the lines.
Students may earn extra points/lines if the spoken tone matches the tone of the poem, hand motions are used when appropriate, and the poem is done in a volume that the class can easily hear.
Students will lose points/line if the poem was not practiced to mastery level and on-going assistance is needed from the teacher.
If a longer poem is recited, the extra lines will be "banked", or saved, to be used later in the year.
