It began with the first snow of the season.
As students watched the snow falling from our classroom windows, I read aloud Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” several times. Students listened, imagined, and created special winter gifts to share with their families.
As I read the poem for the third time, some students began reciting along with me. Over the next few weeks, we continued practicing until the class could recite the entire poem with expression from memory. Excited by their accomplishment, students decided they wanted to share their recitation on our blog. So students created our first podcast. Special thanks to Ms. Kreul for her podcasting coaching and the loan of her microphone!
