In our first week with Dulles, we learned about lines and stanzas in poetry. We read Alice Walker’s “How Poems Are Made” and wrote poetry to express our feelings. Then on Thursday, we read May Carolyn Davis’ poem “Portrait of a House.” We talked about stanzas being used as rooms for a poem, and put that to use in describing our homes and schools. Please enjoy these selections from the class:

So what I like about basketball
Is when I’m playing and the ball go in the net
And it makes a smooth sound.
By Takiera D.
When I am upset
I tend to make a face
A face that shows I am not happy
Then I began to cry
Then my eyes began to turn red.
By Delonte W.
Movie night with family
It just feels relaxing and fun just sitting
Down on the couch with covers and watching
TV and laugh and have fun together
By Amerie P.
A brown school with about 30 windows.
The inside is a brown and green school
That makes you feel like you’re in a jungle
The gym is a large red and black
basketball court with black chairs
By Santana P.
In my house I got 17 windows
3 bedrooms a lot of food and fresh
water and a defreezer gaming room
so that I can play games
And I got a basement I can
Watch old movies and I got a attic
By Jayshawn T.
My house and windows are Clean
My fridge is full and my kitchen is Clean.
My bed always made
My bathroom smells good
My wifi box is in my living room.
