Poetry Friday: Taking a Stretch and An Announcement

IMG_1077

Thank you, Linda for hosting Poetry Friday at Teacher Dance.

It’s my goal this year for more consistency in trying the Poetry Stretch over at The Miss Rumphius Effect. On Monday she gave us the Monometer form to try.  Here’s the definition: Monometer: a poem in which each line contains only one stress.

Here’s two I tried.  One for the fifth grade class I subbed in on Tuesday:
