We have been busy learning about and exploring poetry.  Did you know that you can write a poem about anything??  Well, you can.  We started out by listening to lots of poems written by Shel Silverstein.  Then Mrs. Hemsey chose some poetry books that we could just look at and explore.  They were really cool!




We loved exploring the poetry books.  We discovered that you can write fiction and nonfiction poems, too.  Then we decided to try writing one together.  We decided on a topic, which was Rainy Days.  Next we brainstormed ideas and shared anything that reminded us of rainy days.  Then we came up with this:

Next step is to think of our own topics and to write our own poem.  Stay tuned...
