It’s Poetry Month so of course the sixth graders are working on poetry. My oldest, Meg, worked on a few haiku tonight, and a few limericks, as well as a free verse. But my favorite by far was the limericks. Just have to share:
There once was a reddish wool sweater
which made everything feel much better.
It fell in the sink
which caused it to shrink
and now I can’t wear my red sweater.
And her other one was:
There once was a girl from Brazil
who sometimes became an ill pill.
She jumped all around
and fell to the ground
and her mother said, "What is your deal?!!"
They made me giggle. 🙂

She’s taking after her poet mama!
It makes me happy to see how much she enjoys it. 🙂
I love those! I wonder if my daughter would mind me putting one of her poems up on my blog for National Poetry Month. Good idea!
(an aside: those ads that play every time I comment on Livejournal are irksome)
I know. I wonder if there’s anything I can do about them. Like, if I had a paid acct. would you not see the ads? Or would you have to have a paid acct not to see them too? It all just makes me want to move to Blogger. But I like the community here and the friending feature.
I am a paid subscriber, so I never ever see ads anywhere on LJ. Not sure if my blog has ads – you can check, which would answer the question as to what would happen if you were a paid subscriber.
They are working on limericks? *is delighted*
So many schools only do anagrams, haiku and either diamantes or cinquains!
Those were adorable!
