The Book of Questions @ Moos Elementary (4th Grade)

Last week, we started our residency with the fourth graders at Moos Elementary. We started by making poems that ask silly questions. This allows us to see how poetry is playful, fun, and free!

Lundon S.

Why are there tacos on my pencil?
Where am I?
Who is she?
Why are you in Wisconsin?
Who am I?
Why are you blue?
Why doesn’t Santa Claus come through the door?


Why is the sky blue?
Angela B.

Why is the sky blue?
Is it because the painter painted you?
Or the sky had the blues?
Where is the hot sun?


Green Tiger Green Sun
Angel M.

Why is the tiger green?
Where is the Tiger, Woods?
Why is the grass green?
Where is the sun out?
Why is the tiger tired?

Moving Things
Esmeralda S.

How is a flower running to a house?
Who ate the running taco?
How are you not able to catch up to the running watermelon?
When am I going to dinner with the running watermelon?
Is a park walking to another location?


Question Poem
Aaron H. 

Did you sprint to the park?
Have you gotten to school yet?
Where is the restaurant?
Why are the flowers flying?
Do you fly to school?


Weird Things
Daphne V.

Where is a restaurant skipping to?
How is she flying to the park?
Why do pictures talk to me?
Can we sing to a dog?
Are tacos alive to others?
