Student Poetry Month: Inanimate Objects Poem Week

I interviewed Laura Purdie Salas about her new book IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT in March. That interview is HERE.

Then I had an opportunity to work with a fourth grade class. We made a list of all the inanimate objects in the classrooms. I am featuring their poems all week.

Rolling soccer balls
I’m as crazy as a jump rope
kick, bounce, jump
I like playing with kids
Super, star soccer


Jumping pencil
I am as sleepy as a pillow
rolling, spelling, writing
We do your homework

~ Abby

A coat as white as snow
I am as warm as 1000 blankets
drops, eats, explores
Gets cold when left alone
hungry, warm coats
