Poetry Friday: Student Poetry Month

Thanks to Irene at Live Your Poem for hosting Poetry Friday this 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 classroom inanimate objects. I am featuring their poems all week.

Messy whiteboards
we get scribbled on all day
messy scribbles, writing
People write on me all day
boards you write on forever

~Allison S

Jumping water bottle
bouncing as a chair
I am as running as a lion
keep you hydrated
healthy

~Taryn

The restless recorder
I am as cheesy as a chisel
definitely delicate
sweet, sour, smart,
silent restless recorder

~Macy

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

~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

National Poetry Month Featuring Student Work

Great new NPM button found at Jama’s Alphabet Soup.

Each year I like to feature the work of my students at Silver Star Elementary.  Some of you might find a poetry postcard in your mailbox this month.

To begin, these are third grade students.  The assignment was to research an animal in order to create an animal poem for the poetry project.  I discovered Pic Monkey and am having lots of fun with it.
