I just had my students complete prepositional poems in small groups. Here is the one I used for an example:
At the Beach
at the beach
amid many sunbathers
on my blanket
with my book
in the beautiful sunshine
ismy favorite place to relax!
I had the kids work in groups of 4 or 5. They had to choose a topic and then each had to write a prepositional phrase then pass the paper along to the next student. After I edited these, I gave them chart paper and markers. They had to copy the poem onto the chart paper and illustrate it. They did a beautiful job on these! My favorite was from
a BOY who did his own for extra credit:
At the Mall
at the mall
with my mom
near the dressing room
in the ladies clothing department
around the perfume and jewelry
is the WORST place for me to be!!
I cracked up! So did his classmates when he read it. At first they didn't realize the slant he had taken and actually thought . . . What a funny kid he is!
