Poetry Friday: Wrapping Up National Poetry Month

20140501-185928.jpg

Well, it was almost thirty days of student poetry. I hate when days get ahead of me and I don’t get posts up. National Poetry Month is complete.

I want to thank those of you who have shared your poetry postcards on Facebook and your blogs such as Laura Salas and Liz Stenglass. I loved getting signed and personalized bookmarks for the students from Irene Latham. I have been sharing these with students.

Most of the postcards that were sent out have been accepted into the National Schools Writing Project’s Young Americans Poetry Project.
This digest is in its twentieth year and such a great place to send student work for publishing.

Here is more poetry for students:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I am a tiny humming bird.
My colors are as colorful as a bright rainbow.
You can barely see my wings flapping so hard.
I never stop beating my wings or I can die.
I am the fastest flier.

Kara M.
Grade 4
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I am cerulean.
I am as swift as a whale.
I travel like a fish.
I have razor-sharp teeth I am big so look out for me.
I am a whale shark.

Malachai D.
Grade 4
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I am a soft Tiger.
My tail wiggles like waves in the ocean.
I sneak up under the grass to stalk my prey.
I purr when I am happy.
I am a brave Tiger.

Melissa R.
Grade 4
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I am a pink pig.
I am as fat as a bookshelf.
I wobble and tremble.
I donโ€™t sweat.
I am a pig named Olga.

Nathan K.
Grade 4
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I am a cute dog
Small as a Persian cat
I can go five miles per hour
I am a pug

Logan M.
Grade 4

If you signed up for a postcard and didn’t get one, please email me at macrush53-at-yahoo-dot-com. I will be getting a few final ones out(international next week).
Poetry Friday is at Katya’s Write.Sketch. Repeat.

  1. Such voice in each one of these, Jone – what a wonderful gift, those post cards are! And what a gift this particular month of poetry celebration has been, too.

  3. Like the word choices here, all this flapping, wiggling, wobbling motion! “Cerulean” is lovely and “Olga” is a sweet name for a pig ๐Ÿ™‚
