All Good Things Come to An End…

For our final session with Ms. Tze’s class at Dulles I decided to bring in a group exercise based on Magnetic Poetry. Each student received two index cards and everyone wrote down one word, (any word of their choosing) on each card. I collected the cards and gathered all the students into a circle where they shuffled around the words and constructed a poem using all the words the students provided. After adding a few words they felt were missing, this is what they came up with!


I love my dog, mom, and dad

kids love animals and pizza

I love malls, cats, SkyZone and cool ice cream

Sixflags is like heaven

I love Jumping Jam, and jacks and juice

Beauty is like all the things I love
