The response format first the daughter writes to her mother and then the mother writes back about the same topic creates a kind of dialogue through poetic letters that would resonate with many mothers and daughters. One that I liked was where the daughter and her classmates were playing catch with a soccer ball and broke a window. The daughter took the blame even though she did not do it and has to show her mother the note from her teacher. The mother then shows her daughter the note she wrote back to the teacher, where she acknowledges her daughter's wrongdoing but also expresses pride at her willingness to take responsibility: " She stood her ground.
They could try it with a parent, as in the book if parents would participate , or in class with a partner. Feb 26, Taryn Vogel rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-s-poetry. Personal Reaction: I was absolutely captivated by these poems. It is a great resource for not only a classroom, but at home to when your child is having problems.
I was always a little self conscious when I was growing up. I was even bullied, and the one person to pull me through that was my mom. She let me know every day that I was worth it, and I was beautiful no matter what anyone else said. That said, this poetry book really hit home with me.
Purpose: These poems should be targeted more to 5t Personal Reaction: I was absolutely captivated by these poems. Purpose: These poems should be targeted more to 5th and 6th grade students. The issues talked about in the poem would be more for older students that were on their way to middle school. This poetry book would be a great idea to use for when teaching a lesson that is more for every day life, not like a math lesson or a spelling test.
The school I volunteer at has a counselor lesson every Wednesday where she comes in and teaches the students a lesson in self-motivation, or perseverance. This book could go hand in hand with a lesson like that. All students, mostly girls, have the same problems and struggles that the poems portray and this would be a great story to show them that everyone goes through the same things and there is a way to help.
