We Are Writing Poetry

Grade 5 has been writing beautiful poetry. Read on to see their latest posts–prepositional phrase poems and other poetry forms, as well!

Poems are more beautiful if you pay attention to every single word choice.

Here are some good ideas to add to your poems:

  1. Rich and meaningful adjectives
  2. Prepositional phrases that have adjectives and strong nouns
  3. Just the right verbs
  4. Similes (comparisons using like or as — “The sun shone like a blazing fire.”)
  5. Metaphors (direct comparisons — “The blazing fire in the sky burned the ground under my feet.”)

Here are some websites that will give you poetry ideas:

  1. ReadWriteThink has a variety of interactive poems you can write and then print out.
  2. RhymeZone Rhyming Dictionary

Here are some sites that have poems to read:

  1. Giggle Poetry by Bruce Lansky and others
  2. Fun and Games with Shel Silverstein
  3. Poetry4Kids with Kenn Nesbitt

In poetry, it is best to paint pictures with your words, but if you want to illustrate your poems, as well, do one of these:

  1. Draw your own picture on Google Drawings or use another drawing app.
  2. Take your own pictures on your phone or camera.
  3. Use one of the free image sites we know about:

toward the big bus

under the small bed

out of the nice mall

earth day

hello today is the earth day

don’t make the earth trash

and do make yourself love

if you love the earth throw away your trash

don’t throw the things in the sea

because you will not see

PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 is a great thing that make me feel unbored. I like to play Overwatch and my favorite player is MCree. He is super cool because when he does his ultimate, he says, “IT’S HIGH NOON.” And he is the bad guy.

summer holiday

Yesterday we were all in my grandma’s house. I have one uncle living in London, and he said to us he wanted to see us.

Then my brother said, “I want to go to Barcelona and Madrid.” My big aunty said, “I went to Vienna.”

Then we said, “We will go to all the countries that they say.”

And I am very excited for this trip.

Recycling is something that we have to do. If we didn’t, the earth will be in a big, big trouble. Pollution is the opposite of recycling. Pollution is the thing that kills millions of people. Pollution, pollution is what we have to stop.

Think, ask yourself why don’t we stop pollution?!
