Logo for Where I'm From Poetry Lesson Plan
This is a plan for a multi-day poetry lesson based on George Ella Lyon's poem "Where I'm From."  Students will be asked to identify the structure and form of the poem, as well as discuss how the meaningfulness of the poetry changes when the author is the one reading it aloud.  As part of the assignment, students will be writing, reading aloud, recording, and sharing their own "Where I'm From" poems.  This lesson was designed for a fifth grade class, though it could be used at a variety of...

This was very easy to follow and understand. I especially enjoyed the idea of not only having the students write their own poem, but also asking them to record their voices as they read it!

The only suggestion that I could think of is to provide them with an additional example. It's my belief that if they see an example of this assignment completed by a previous student, that would be helpful. 

Technical Remarks:

I like how many different technology pieces the students are exposed to in this lesson.

I think your lesson plan is well written and easy to understand. The idea of making a poetry for their own is great for their creativity. Technology tools integrated to this lesson also look proper to accomplish this project. To break down the lesson into 5 days looks very helpful for students to take time when there are creative activities expected. 

Technical Remarks:

I just recommend the other blog tools for the kids. Blogger is one of Google app, so there is an age restriction. It would be convenient for them to use weebly.com which provide student's blog for free.
