Poetry in Bloom! #PoetryFriday #NPM17

IMG_5615

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.”
