“Purple is the queen of colors” ~ Color Personification Poems @ Avondale Logandale

In week 9, we stretched our poetic imaginations with personification poems about colors and continued to work on writing poems with multiple stanzas. We had fun discussing ways we can imagine colors as people with different personalities before taking some time to write our own original color personification poems.

Each week there will be 3 poems from each class published to our Hands on Stanzas blog, and every student will have an opportunity to see their written work published on our blog in the weeks to come.

Scroll down to enjoy our published color personification poems!
