In case you didn’t know, we are big into poetry around here. The girls love to read poems, try to memorize poems, and of course, write their own poems!
We very rarely attempt a rhyming poem, instead opting for a simple sentence starter or poetry frame to get us going. These simple types of poems are easy to write and always turn out well. The girls are immensely proud of their poetry folders.
Here are some recent poems the girls wrote. Each line starts with “I wish…” – write as many or as few lines as you want!
I often sit at the computer and just type these in as the girls talk – the thoughts seems to flow more freely when handwriting is not in the picture. I can’t wait to see what illustrations the girls will make to decorate these wishing poems.
