Then left instructions for students to write or sketch about their favorite page from the book. If they finished and wanted to try writing their own poem. they could. We have read poetry and written a bit of scripted/patterned/rule following poetry but free form is not something we have a lot of experience with. Surprises waited for me, with what they came up with. So I must share them with all of you!
"Oh frigate your chest is so big you entertain the girls.
And why is your chest so red?
Puff it up again so I can see if a mate."
|This chickadee is a bit obsessed with his study of the frigate!|
When I see you, you look like
someone got a bucket and painted you."
You have a lot of read and
Your wings so straight
Your eyes so great
Your tail so red."
get your feathers died
the secretary bird
chicka a dee dee dee
You say chick a dee dee dee dee
"Ninja bird ninja bird
how can you defeat a hawk?
Ninja bird you are like a shadow."
