Play a game
We are going to have a jenga game
going. When I see students trying
their best, I am going to have them
go to the red table in the back and
play jenga. This game is supposed
to just give a little break from
writing. I will have only two people
back there at a time and they will
have about a 2 minutes is all. When
I tell you to go back to the red table
I want you to go back there safely
and when I ask you to leave there
needs to be no questions so that
you have a chance to return again.
Breaks will be short so that
everyone get a break.
Any questions
Transition: While I handout poems I need everyone to get 3
1. Pencil with an eraser
2. One blank piece of paper
3. One line piece of paper
This should take everyone only one minute. When you return to
your desk and have a poem I want you to start writing out your
poem. If it makes it easier you can tape your papers to the table
so that the lines stay in the same place. If you return to your desk
and dont have a poem I want you to raise your hand.

Handout poems
Circulate through the room, first going to students that
normally need extra help and get them started first.
Pick the first two student that are working hard to go to
the jenga game.
Allow students to work on their poems.
