Book Spine Poetry all week!
Love it. These were done by 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. I’ll have some kinder, 1st and 2nd come through and create their own poems later this week.
Poetry stressed me out as a student. The structure, symbolism, rhythms was all too much. It wasn’t until much later that I learned to just savor the words rather than pick it apart.
Mission of the week: demystify the world of poetry. Let them explore without looming expectations.
