Write a Diamante Poem
Going on a road trip? If you and your family are traveling to a vacation destination or to visit long-distance relatives, your third grader may have some extra time on her hands. Keep your third grader busy with an activity that reviews basic grammar and parts of speech, encourages creative thinking, and best of all, records the most memorable parts of the trip! Have her write a diamante poem. A diamante is a special poem that makes use of a simple structure, resulting in a diamond-shaped poem. Diamantes are fun and easy to write, so your third grader may want to write a whole collection of them to preserve those memorable moments of your travels. More is better here: she’ll be getting great in grammar and parts of speech. To celebrate her literary art, we also provide directions for an attractive diamond-frame card. Mail those trip memories to grandma and grandpa, and you can be sure you'll make their day.
