We're Poets!

We have had so much fun talking and learning more about poetry.

Today we talked about how really great poems begin with a big idea that gives us a big feeling in our heart. We practiced by creating poem as a class.

Tressie asked the kids what a good big idea for a poem about something that gives us a big feeling would be and one student responded with, "our class family!" Pretty sweet huh?

First we created a web to jot down little moments and ideas that go with our big idea!

Then we worked on turning that web into a poem!

The kids have been really busy working on their own poetry. Each student will "publish" their best piece of poetry on Friday to share with the class!
