    Surfing legends Surfing legends Presentation Transcript

      By: Lisa Gestrine
    • Their Story…
      Everybody always talks about them, and everybody has heard of them. They say that they have taken on the biggest monster waves on the planet. Nobody has seen them but everybody hears about them. They are…THE SURFING LEGENDS
    • HAIKU
      Connections to 3-blocks: I would use this poem during word study.
      Connections to skill, strategy, or idea: I would use this to teach syllables within words and phrases. With good usage of syllables, students can have better flow and rhythm in their writing.
      http://www.kidzone.ws/poetry/haiku.htm This is a website where students can go and learn what a haiku is along with examples. They then can print off worksheets to guide them through writing their own haiku and analyzing a haiku poem.
      http://www.pbs.org/parents/creativity/ideas/haiku.html This is a great interactive website where students can create their own haiku with a bunch of already chosen words. The lines are labeled by the number of syllables needed in each line, and then students drag the words to a line to form a haiku poem.
      Line 1: 5 syllables
      Line 2: 7 syllables (longer than first and last line)
      Line 3: 5 syllables (same length as first line)
      No Rhyming
    • HAIKU
      Surfer on hisboard Paddling to catch a wave Ready to take flight
      Connection to 3-blocks: I would use this in Reading Workshop.
      Connection to skill, strategy, or idea: I would use this to teach sequence of events. Since a narrative poem tells a story, students can identify what happened and in what order in the story.
      http://www2.nkfust.edu.tw/~emchen/CLit/poetry_types.htm I like this website because it is kid friendly. It tells what a narrative poem is, along with a lyric poem and examples of both.
      http://www.poetryarchive.org/childrensarchive/home.do This is a great website not just for narrative poems but any poem. Children can search poems by theme or interest and then once they pick a poem it also reads it out loud to them if they want it to.
      Tells a story or a sequence of events
      Does not have to rhyme but can
      Many lines
      Similar in style to a short story
      Epics: used in history to pass down stories about heroes
      Ballads: a song
      He thrust his joy against the weight of the sea;climbed through, slid under those long banks of foam--(hawthorn hedges in spring, thorns in the face stinging).How his brown strength drove through the hollow and coilof green-through weirs of water!Muscle of arm thrust down long muscle of water;and swimming so, went out of sightwhere mortal, masterful, frail, the gulls went wheelingin air as he in water, with delight.Turn homethe sun goes down; swimmer, turn home.Last leaf of gold vanishes from the sea-curve.Take the big roller’s shoulder, speed and serve;come to the long beach home like a gull diving.For on the sand the grey-wolf sea lies, snarling,cold twilight wind splits the waves’ hair and showsthe bones they worry in their wolf-teeth. O, wind blowsand sea crouches on sand, fawning and mouthing;drops there and snatches again, drops and again snatchesits broken toys, its whitened pebbles and shells.
      By Judith Wright
      (Wright 2010)
      Connections to 3-blocks: I would use this in Reading Workshop.
      Connection to skill, strategy, or idea: I would use it to teach summarizing. Student can get a main idea from the book being read and write an acrostic poem to summarize the main idea of the book.
      Resources: http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/student-interactives/acrostic-poems-30045.html This website is an interactive activity that students can do online. The website helps guide them in making their own acrostic poem using the word acrostic. It shows them the process and helps them understand what type of poem it is.
      http://www.netrover.com/~kingskid/poetry/acrostic_poem.htm This website helps students create an acrostic poem using their name. It guides them through creating adjectives that describes them and then creates the acrostic poem for them after they come up with the words for it.
      Spell out a word that relates to what you want to write a poem about
      Spell the word vertically down a page
      Write a word, phrase, or sentence that relates to the word spelled. Start each line with a letter of the spelled word
      Stand, balance, and ride
      Up at sunrise and home at sundown
      Relaxed and laid back
      Float on water
      Excited for big and dangerous waves
      Real legends of the water
    • BIO POEM
      Connection to 3-blocks: I would use this in Reading Workshop.
      Connection to skill, strategy, or idea: I would use this as a character analysis strategy and to help them summarize a story. The students could read a story, analyze the character by writing the poem, and then discuss them in their literature circles.
      http://www.gips.org/Technology/T.I.E./Mangers-Johnson/Poetry%20Unit/Bio_Poem_Format.html This is a great website that shows the format of a bio poem. Students can use it to write one, fill it out online, or print it out to write one as well.
      http://cuip.uchicago.edu/~adarice/cwsite/poems/poembio.htm#own I would use this website to show students the definition of a bio poem, an example, and an outline of the format all in one website.
      A formula poem
      Insert word into pre-established structure
      Describes a character
      Line 1: Name of character in capital letters
      Line 2: 4 words that describe character
      Line 3: Word or phrase that describes relationship
      Line 4: Start with “Who Fears” and list 3 things
      Line 5: Start with “Who Would Like” followed by 3 items
      Line 6: Start with “RESIDENT OF”
      Line 7: Character’s last name
      (Fountas 2001)
    • BIO POEM
      Stubborn, caring, risk taker, optimistic
      Hates the way his life is going and is waiting for his big break to live a life as a surfer
      Who fears working at the fish market his whole life
      Who would like to live his dream and become a famous surfer
      Resident of Shiverpool
      Connection to 3-blocks: I would use this in Word Study.
      Connection to skill, strategy, or idea: Since there is a lot of rhyming in a limerick, students will have to be aware of many vocabulary words. I would show them how to use a thesaurus and also do vocabulary work with them to broaden their word knowledge.
      http://ettcweb.lr.k12.nj.us/forms/newpoem.htm This is an interactive website that lets kids create an instant limerick. It lets them fill in the blanks and creates the poem. It also gives an examples of what a limerick is as well.
      http://www.dmoz.org/Arts/Literature/Poetry/Forms/Fixed_Verse_Forms/Limerick/ This is a great resource website for children. It gives many kid friendly sights where they can find funny limericks to read and look at for examples.
      Humorous poems
      5 lines
      Line 1: Rhymes with second line
      Line 2: Rhymes with first line
      Line 3: Rhymes with fourth line
      Line 4: Rhymes with third line
      Line 5: Surprise ending/humorous statement/rhymes with first line
      There was a surfer on a board
      Going toward coral as sharp as a sword
      He didn’t know what to do
      His stomach was turning as if he had the flu
      His alarm went off and his mind was restored
      Connection to 3-blocks: I would use this poem in Writing Workshop.
      Connection to skill, strategy, or idea: I would use this in writing workshop for students to pick a topic and write about it. It would give them a chance to write to express and show me they can write with voice.
      http://www.gigglepoetry.com/poetryclass/limerickcontesthelp.html This is a great resource for children to use if they want to see an example of a limerick or if they want to see the format. It’s all kid friendly poems with humor.
      http://www.learner.org/teacherslab/math/patterns/limerick/limerick_acttxt.html This website is great because a limerick is already made, but it allows students to put new phrases and words in to alter the already made limerick poem.
      Does not rhyme
      No regular rhythm
      Poet creates rules of how poem should look, sound, and express meaning
      Surfing eases my mind of turmoil and stress
      I feel at one with nature and peace at mind
      It gives me strength to get through the hard times in life
      It gives me courage when a scary moment comes in life
      It puts me on top of the world
      Making me believe that I can do anything
