Writing with a Poet's Eyes

First look at the examples of poems attached. The first two are written by the poet Amy Ludwig Vanderwater. She writes poems about things she finds on her farm. The poems on slides 3 and 4 were written by students like you about about an object that was important to them! 1. Pick an object that is important to you from around your house / classroom. Your poem will be easier to write if the object that you pick is meaningful to you. 2. Use your new poetry skills to write a poem about your object. Remember to try to look at things in new ways. Use your adjectives, action verbs, senses, and emotions to write the best poem that you can about your object. 3. You can write it in your Literacy journal or on Seesaw. 4. Click add to start your poem. 5. Click upload to add your photo or use label or pencil or note tool to write it in Seesaw. 6. Click check to submit your work.
