A Poem A Day - Clean the World

Keeping our Earth clean,
Makes for a better place to live,
For you and for me.

Here's one of our Haiku collaborative poems. Just in time for Earth Day.

A Poem A Day - Fog

Folds and Folds
Of spun sugar, like a soft
Gray blanket over the land.

This is from Silver Seeds by Paul Paolilli and Dan Brewer, New York: Scholastic, 2001. This is the book our class read over and over and we practiced writing our acrostics. I will post some of the work over the next few days.

A Poem a Day - Spring

Swinging high on a breezy day,
Pretending to be a kite.
Riding scooters up and down the block.
In my face blows a gentle wind and
Noisy children
Gather Easter eggs.
- Ms. B's class 2005

This poem was written by my class as we experimented with acrostics. We were learning that a sentence does NOT need to be confined to one line.

Poem a Day - April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with liquid silver drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
- Langston Hughes -

I found this poem in "A Poem for Every Day" by Susan Moger. I used it when I was teaching 2nd grade. I can't wait to dive into it and remind myself of all the wonderful memories we had!
