Students need to practice public speaking. What better way then to have them recite a seasonal poem. This Activity includes a scoring rubric along with a description for the students with fill-ins for dates and state curriculum standards.
Life is unpredictable. It changes with the seasons. Even your coldest winter happens for the best of reasons. And though it feels eternal, like all you'll ever do is freeze. I promise spring is coming and with it, brand new leaves. (poem and picture by Erin Hanson)
