Kozminski’s 4th and 5th graders continued writing and practicing poems to prepare for their Mahogany Club performances. We focused on the physical elements of performing, thinking ways to emphasize our words when reciting a poem. Students looked for action language in their own poems, then brainstormed engaging ways to read their words. Check out some more of their poems below:
Red like singing Robins
Little red riding hood skipping
Red roses growing everywhere
Tasty red strawberries on my mind
Fire flames heating up my area
Red is tasty and full of heat
Mickey and Minnie
I am Minnie, the heart of the show.
I am Mickey, the star of the show.
I care about all things.
I am the leader of the team.
The best duo of cartoon history.
When I find a stranger in the dark, I run away.
When I hear sounds in the dark, I sit down, criss cross applesauce and breathe
When I see lightning Flash, I hug my sisters.
When when the power goes out in the house, I call my mom
When I hear a balloon pop, I feel my heart beat
Fear feels like getting hit, But I more and more remember how to conquer it.
I believe I can conquer my fears one step at a time
Pretty trees with
Air surrounding them
Cool shaped rocks laying in the grass
Pretty designs on the wall also
Seeing bugs crawl
Sunny sun making us hot and cry
Gorgeous buildings all around
Red ants crawling on the ground
The wind flowing around
The sound of nature
The fresh breeze of trees
The beautiful butterflies all above
The sunshine blowing in our faces
And finally the cool air flowing towards me
