Dear Kobe

Lesson Note: This week, we learned all about epistolary poems by reading “Dear Basketball: by Kobe Bryant. Then everyone wrote their own letter poems! We also wrote our own myth poems this week.

For My Sister

by A’rroni E.


I love you because you are my sister

and you will always be my sister.


Dear Kobe Bryant,

by Aden L.


I like you Kobe

and I look up to Kobe

and when he died

I was crying every day and

every morning I will watch

this game every morning

Love You Kobe Bryant


Dear Kobe,

by Ryan G.


The part that I feel about

is when he crashed in a jet

It was good that he was

playing a sport

I feel mad because he was crushed

in a jet and I feel bad for him

I will always believe you in my dreams

I never forgot family
