Lesson Note: This week, we learned how to write epistolary poems, which are letter poems. Everyone chose a person, place, or thing and wrote a poem in letter form. We practiced identifying tone and using it in our poems. Here are the last two poets to be published–now everyone has been published in both classrooms!
Mrs. Childs, 5th Grade
Nottie your songs are clear
you make me feel hopeful
but when you
i lost myself
but what I want to do is listen
to your favorite songs
Mr. Goldner, 5th Grade
The Best Dog Ever
You’re the best dog I would ever ask for.
You were nice, good, grateful, cool, cuddly,
and protective. If Whitney were to be here
today, she would have her room
with her best friend Chapo.
Only if you were alive
I would let you lick me
and I don’t let any dogs lick me.
I know you couldn’t handle living too long
because you were old
and I would do anything for you to come back.
Love you Whitney.
