Our room worked so hard this year to create and publish our poems. One thing that we did was to have a gallery walk of our poems when they were in the rough draft stage. Students chose a poem that they felt was strong in that it included several components of our poetry lessons. They may have chosen poems based on whether they included pieces from our lessons on line breaks, repetition, strong feelings, word choice, and comparative language. After poems were selected, we did a gallery walk of our poems. Students rotated around the hallway to read their classmates' poems and provide feedback. They used their poetry rubric to give concrete compliments and tips using our poetry concepts. Using this feedback, poems were revised and edited for their final copy, which will be shared at our Authors' Tea. Here are some pictures of the kids hard at work during our gallery walk:
