On this Poetry Friday during National Poetry Month, I gave my Kindergarten poets an on-demand writing challenge. Their task was to write a poem inspired by the still life they painted in Art class last week. We discussed several forms they are familiar with, including list and five senses poems. After brainstorming with a writing buddy, they got down to work. After just a few minutes, words started to bloom on their pages. Here is just a “bud vase” filled with spring joy.
All that is good about spring.
I love how Trevor addressed the flower, don’t you? And plants DO participate in the making of oxygen, don’t they?
I want to hug spring, too!
Love the sentiment that “birds are pretty and gracious.”
