Poetry Friday: Dictionaries
(Click on the image to enlarge it.) This is an original dictionary created by one of my fourth graders. You have to admit, it's pretty amazing! It's an ongoing project, and it inspired many of the other students in my class to create original words.
If the speaker in the following poem had done his book report on the Korindictionary, he would have been way more entertained:
BOOK REPORT ON THE DICTIONARY
I found the plot missing,
The dialog weak.
I kept waiting and waiting for someone to speak.
The characters bored me.
In fact, there weren’t any!
The jokes were not funny, and there weren’t too many.
(the rest of the poem is here)
Toby is hosting the Poetry Friday round up at The Writer's Armchair. Let's go check out the words and poems everyone has chosen to share this week!
