It’s almost time for POETRY

It may be cold and dreary outside now, but soon our classroom is going to be filled with energy and expression because in a few short weeks it’s going to be POETRY MONTH! I cannot wait to introduce you to the six amazing poetry styles that are going to transform you into a lyrical genius.

Here’s a little inspiration from the amazing Walt Whitman:

Love the earth and sun

and animals.

Despise riches, give alms

to everyone that asks.

Stand up for the stupid

and crazy.

Devote your income and labor to


and your very flesh shall be a 

great poem.


Have a GREAT summer, don’t forget your summer reading, and think about the words of Henry W. Longfellow: “The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.” :)
