We have been reading several different poetry books as we write poetry this month. We started with writing List Poems like we read in Falling Down The Page. Last week we worked on writing Haiku.
This week your Third Grader is rewriting Nursery Rhymes giving them sometimes bizarre, violent, but always fun endings like we read in Gris Grimmly's Wicked Nursery Rhymes.
Next week we will be writing some nature inspired poems when we read Poetrees.
All of these great books were suggestions from Jennifer at Green Bean Books.
All of the poems we write this month are up outside Room 12 and under the Student Writings Section of the blog.
