Rain Drop Shape Poem
Students develop their range of words in writing. In this lesson about word choice, students read a book, Rain Drop, Plop!, by Wendy Cheyette Lewison and use it to aid them in increasing their use of descriptive words. Students think about raindrops and build their own list of words to describe raindrops. Students write a poem about raindrops on a raindrop-shaped piece of blue construction paper.
