Introduction/Beginning - So yesterday we worked on creating a graphic organizer that had all the things we smell, hear, see, taste and feel in our homes. Today we are going to be creating metaphors from

our graphic organizer to write descriptive poems about our homes. Just like the author of Uptown painted pictures for us with his words, we want to do the same for our readers. Guidance Independence/Middle - Looking at your graphic organizers, who can give me a metaphor for their home. If I look at mine, I might say: - Home is chicken enchiladas with bright red chili sauce - Home is mama saying I am happy you are home! - Home is slobbery dog kisses - What are some examples you can give about your home? Home is. - I was reading over your graphic organizers last night. You all have wondering descriptions of what your home is. I noticed though that it looks like some of you need a little more time to fill in some of the columns. That is no problem at all. When we head back to our desks, you will complete your graphic organizer before you start your poem. - I am going to explain how to create the Home poem first though so that whenever you finish your graphic organizer you will be all set to go writing your home poem. - Lets look at my graphic organizer together. Our jobs today is to write a poem from our graphic organizer. You will need to have at least five lines and each line will start with Home is. You can see how I wrote my poem right here I wrote home is and then I looked at my graphic organizer and thought, which description do I want to use? How about slobbery dog kisses. So, I have Home is slobbery dog kisses. That is one line. I need four more. - I will leave my graphic organizer and poem up here as an example. In just a minute your job is going to be to head back to your desk. Then, depending on where you are, you will either finish your graphic organizer or begin writing your home poem. - Ms. Nelson and I will be looking for students who get started right away and are not talking to their neighbors. I am sure we will catch a lot of people to spread out. - Pass out graphic organizers and writing notebooks. Closure/End - Wow, I saw a lot of really hard workers. Lets come up to the rug. Go ahead and bring your writing notebooks. - Would anyone like to sit in the authors chair and share the poem they wrote?
