A few weeks ago in Writing Workshop, we completed the final draft of our poems. One day while Ms. Arboe was here, she published our writing by typing up our poems. We then illustrated the poems using black flair markers. Our finished papers reminded us of the Shel Silverstein books we reviewed while learning to write our poems. Today, thanks to Mr. Ball, we were able to use a microphone and speaker system to have our very own Kindergarten Plus Poetry Slam. We each got a chance to read our original poems to the class using the microphone while our classmates got to be part of the audience. It was really cool!
We each got to have our own copy of Our Class Poetry Book to keep. We are now published authors and illustrators. Sweet!
