I Hear – Yo Escucho Poems @ Moos Fall 2019

How do you make noise on paper?/ ¿Cómo haces ruido en el papel?

In our second week of poetry class, we explored using poetry to express the soundtracks of our lives.

We read a set of sound poems together before taking some time to brainstorm and write our own sound poems about the sounds we hear at school, at home, and around our city and wrote poems to tell this story.
