What do you love?

For our second sessions, Dubois students loved having more time to share their “I Am” poems. Sometimes it just feels great to read aloud what you have written with your own creativity! We also read and discussed Eloise Greenfield’s poem, “Honey, I Love” and brainstormed lists of people and things that we could write love poems about for next week.


After family, friends, God, sports, and pets, other things that students love include: reading, math projects, chicken wings, games, home, dancing, doing back hand springs, moonlight, and sunshine!



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
