It's Poetry Friday and Carmela at Teaching Authors has all the details for today's fabulous poems. At Teaching Authors, there's a sneak peak of a very cool poetry STEAM project and a poem from Imperfect II.
I have been able to sub in the fifth grade classes at my former school. These students are pretty special as they were first graders when I retired. Some of them were in my "Poetry Rocks" afterschool club. And when I've subbed during the last four years, they have had poetry lessons. I have watched them grow as poets.
These two classes did the Color Poem and Art project with a 4 x4 square of a monochromatic collage. It's been fun to bring in some of the papers I use in my art for the students to choose from for their project.

I'm not sure whether I love their poetry or their art the best! How fun that you have planted some seeds for future collage artists AND poets!

It seems that you are continuing to give the gift of poetry to these students, Jone, & now express their feelings in art, too. Each one is unique, must be thrilling for the writer/artist!

Gosh, I'm starting to think children poets are my favorites! What fun to teach poetry in retirement!

What a wonderful gift to share your poetry talents and get kids thinking about poems! Listening to the music and reading these felt delightfully peaceful. Thanks for sharing these.

How wonderful that you're able to reconnect with these students and see how their skills have grown. Thanks for sharing their wonderful work with us!
