Poetry Friday round-up  with Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference

Poetry Friday round-up with Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference

 

This week my students and I wrote about our one little word choices.  I encouraged them to select an image and create a Canva.  I’ll write more about this process on DigiLit Sunday this weekend.  Please consider joining the round-up.  This week we are sharing about OLW in the classroom.

My newest student, a gifted first grader, wrote this profound poem about the idea of selecting a OLW.

A word is like a leaf,

So fragile,

Everyone chooses a word,

At the beginning of the year,

Little do they know,

Their word is a leaf.

–Lynzee, 1st grade

This student selected the word “Astonish” which is quite a big word for her age, but she wrote a personal acrostic that helped me understand her choice.

Astonish (1)

 

My OLW is Present.  My student Vannisa helped me write this poem as I was showing how Canva works.
