Poetry

“Teacher, can I take off my clothes? It’s so hot.” – Riley
No, Riley, keep your clothes on, but you can take off your sweatshirt.

I have to share a poem with you that I did as an example (on the spot, mind you) for my junior high classes when they had to write an unrhymed poem.

They picked the topic: Teletubbies

Four round colors
Purple, yellow, red, and green
Four round bellies
Bouncing with TV’s

With a smiling sun above,
Playing like carefree children,
Four delighted dancing dolts
Saying goodbye to you and you.

Do you see the imagery, repetitions, and the alliteration? (on a fifth grade level, of course)
