Decided to do poetry with my class, severly underestimating the difficult task of explaining poetry and how to create it with little kids. I have a habit of setting my sights really high for projects, and I assume that my students can do anything. I often have the mentality that if I believe they can do something, then they will. Sure enough, after a lengthy discussion and analysis (yep, with highlighters) of many other poems, my grade ones and twos sat down to write their own. Amazing! I was totally blown away by their attempts. Sometimes I feel like there's nothing I can't do with this class. Next up? Haikus. Specifically, for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, which holds a Haiku Invitational. So stoked to see what my lil guys come up with!
