Poetry Friday -- Wild Wows
This Wednesday was the perfect day for Environmental Club to stay indoors, look through our observation notebooks, write poetry, and paint with watercolors. Outside, the wind blew, dark clouds moved so quickly across the sky that at one point we could see both a downpour and bright sun out the window.
After snack, I gave a quick demonstration lesson on using words and phrases from my notebook to write haiku
between green and yellow leaves
sun warms my shoulders
and Fifteen Words or Less poems
of the milkweed leaf
is as soft
Here are a few of the students' creations (made in 45 minutes, please excuse the lack of editing):
