Student Poetry Month: Inanimate Object 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.

The let down pencil
I get left in the pencil bin all day
sharp, dull, lead, eraser
You write with it
lead filled wood


happy as a pig I be
fun, important, electric
I am your gaming station for life
I am your device of glory computer
