Day 26: Writing for my students #NaPoWriMo #playwithpoetryNPM #PoetryFriday

PLAYING WITH POETRY (1)

It’s Poetry Friday! My dear poetry pal and fellow Wonderopolis Lead Ambassador, Carol Varsalona, is hosting the round up this week. I do hope you will visit her at Beyond Literacy Link as well as other PF participants throughout the upcoming week. Carol is lucky to live on the Long Island coast and that setting provides her with loads of poetic inspiration, even if it’s a foggy and gray day. Thanks for hosting the round up this week, Carol!

A peek into my poems and process.

  • Lately I have been trying to write more poetry to use with my students. Why not, right? We love to take nature walks so I wrote this one just for them. It’s perfect for Earth Day week, too!

Just four more days of National Poetry Month to go. If you are looking to share a little poetry wonder with your students, check out this Padlet of all the poetry-related wonders on Wonderopolis. Perhaps they’ll find a bit of inspiration here!

And introducing….

2019 Kidlitosphere Progressive Poem

On April 1, the Poetry Friday family launched the 7th annual Kidlitosphere Progressive Poem organized by author/poet, Irene Latham. (Click here to learn more.) Many of us have signed up to provide a line for the 2019 poem. Author/poet Matt Forrest Esenwine kicked things off with some familiar “found” phrases merged to get us going. Today’s line comes from Linda Kulp Trout at Write Time. Participants are having fun lifting favorite song lyrics to create the next line in the poem. I was excited to provide the 14th line on Sunday, April 14th. I hope you’ll join us to see what happens! Here’s the itinerary for the poem.

  1. I love this idea of writing poetry to use with children. I also love this poem. I am writing a memoir in poetry and have been contemplating getting some feedback from students I am working with. I’m just not sure I’m ready for their honesty!

  2. Christie, your poem for your kinders is just charming for a children’s poem. I can hear the delightful shouts of glee from your students when you share this one. They will also like that their walk photo accompanies the poem.

  3. Simply delightful! I think your poems are such a gift to and from your students. They are so fortunate to be learning in layers of poetry. Now, I need to take a walk!

  4. Love that you took your students out! And that you wrote a poem in their voice. They are so lucky to have you show them the poetry that is in nature!
