Wildcats Writing to Celebrate Poetry Month

April is poetry month. I always tell the kids it’s my favorite month to teach.  PK-3 and I have been exploring the question “What is poetry?” using Eloise Greenfield’s poem, Things. 

The upper grades and I have been writing poetry.  This past week we used Lucille Clifton’s “why some people be mad at me sometimes” as a mentor text.  Our kids have had a great time writing.  Enjoy their poems!
