A "poetic" fun-Friday!

We had so much fun on Friday! As part of Morning Message, we've been talking about the features of poems, and on Friday, it was time to write our own!

The boys and girls learned all about cinquain poetry.  It's a five-line form of poetry and unlike most poems children in Grade Three read, it does not typically rhyme, making it a very easy-to-compose poem.  

Each child  each received a peice of bubble gum and had to write their poem according to the instructions printed (see pic). 

As you can see, we combined a little art with our creative writing and it was a real hit! I can't wait to hang these up in the room!  

Thank you to all the boys and girls for a great afternoon!
