Poetry month has been so much fun. With playing with poetry myself, trying it out with students, and then giving teachers a sandbox of poetry to play in, I have really learned more about poetry and enjoyed all of the poems I created and read this month.
The students’ poems have been especially rewarding. They were open to trying and enjoyed the experiences. I share these last two poems today from students. An ode to Character Studies and a response to the book, Clancy. The joy of being in community with these writers is immeasurable.
This is an acrostic poem spontaneously written in response to the book Clancy by a third grade reluctant writer. He shared the poem with his class to rave reviews.
