‘Family time is the best’

Lesson Note: For our last week, we celebrated poetry by writing acrostic poems about our favorite seasons! Congrats on everyone in the class for writing so many incredible poems and getting published over the course of this residency.

Sun is bright like me

Usually I go to the beach

Many times I go to the skating rink

in My room with my brother writing about summer

Enter my room if it’s too hot

Right now I’m outside and it’s how out


Family Time on Christmas 

by Dorian C.


Family time is the best

A family is about hanging out

My family is the best

I love them so much

Love my family so much, Christmas is fun

You are so nice to have me here
