Over the past couple weeks we have been discussing poetry in our focus lessons. There is a variety of writing types and styles when it comes to poetry. Today we held a poetry share circle to celebrate our study and share our original pieces within our own group. The kids wrote many haikus, free verse poems, and found poems. They also had some creative ways of sharing their work besides just typing it up on a computer. Everyone’s poems were very unique and interesting. I love how poetry is so different from everyday writing. I feel as though we see a different side of ourselves or at least a more inspirational side.
