Day #6…Poetry Challenge

A One Week Poetry Challenge

Today our focus in writing will be that poets observe the world around them.  They write poems about things in nature.  I wrote this poem yesterday morning in my notebook.  I am going to use it as part of my mini-lesson today.  Hopefully it will be warm up enough for my first grade poets to take a nature walk…with notebooks…and write! (I brought beach towels for sitting so this should be interesting!!!)

Sunlight

glistens through

the windows

saying

good morning

and

spreading

cheer

throughout the house.

    I hope you got to take your nature/writing walk. I love your picture of early spring, distilled to this lovely, warm image of the sun’s arrival in the house.
