The criteria for evaluating the rhyming couplets were based on the expectations set out by the Ontario government.  I chose a couple to emphasize namely:
-students will be able to write poems with a given form.
-students will be able to select and use rhyming words.
-students will recognize and use a beat.
-students will spell words appropriate to grade level.
