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

~Shelby

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

~Elliott

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

~Lauren

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

~ 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

~Logan

Organized calendar
I’m as smart as a 7th grader
flip, count, mark
you know what day it is
Time keeper

~Tim, 4th grade

Majestic American Flag
We are strong as a bald eagle
Strong, brave, huge
Best
my country flag
