Passion for Poetry!

April is Poetry Month, and the students in 4Wa are discovering the joys of reading and writing poetry. We have been listening to poems, writing our own, and learning about the different types of poems. We spent some time in the computer lab this week exploring some cool poetry websites, and we even incorporated poetry into our Art class this week! Stay tuned for some poems written by our students in the next couple of weeks.

For more poetry fun at home, check out some of these neat sites:

This slideshow displays our creative poets using alliteration. Alliteration is the repeated use of the same sound… can you figure out the repeated sound in each student’s work?
