      bunnyatwork_small.jpgIn an effort to personalize your professional development; empower you to be creative and innovative; and continue our literary theme, we are promoting National Poetry Month. National Poetry Month is a celebration of poetry first introduced in 1996 by the  Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry  in the United States.

       

      During our POETRY SLAM, we will highlight a different form of poetry.  Share as many poems as you wish. Also include how you use poetry with your students. Share any outstanding or interesting poems that your students have created.

       

      There will be two drawings for this thread. The person that receives the MOST likes will win a prize as well as the winner of our usual drawing.

       

      Participate in our Learning Pathways Thread between April  21, 2014 and July 30, 2014 to be entered into a drawing for an Intel Grand Prize

      Note: This drawing will only become active when a minimum of 10 participants respond, which means in some cases, the drawing will take place after the above mentioned date. For a complete description and eligibility of Engage community drawings, click on the Intel Bunny Person.

       

      Mother’s Day is coming up, so what a great time to write your mother or loved ones a poem.

      We encourage our international audience to participate also!

                Here are some poems my students wrote over the past two years:

                 

                I Am poem:

                I am special cause you helped me and supported me when I started singing and daring cause  you encouraged me to take risks

                 

                I wonder if your love is stronger than Atlas's ability to hold up the world

                I hear crying cause I do it every day of my life because of how hard it is but when your with me it's so much easier

                I see unicorns and alicorns because you create my childhood memories like watching episodes with me

                 

                I want you to recover from your plastic surgrey so when we go to Main Event we can have so much fun together

                I am special cause you helped me and supported me when I started singing and daring cause you encoraged me to take risks

                 

                 

                 

                I pretend that I will be able to be a famous solo artist cause then you can be my aduience cheering my every word

                 

                I feel that you know what I'm going through because you have been there when I needed you most like when you hepled me through my sore

                 

                I touch your hand when I'm scared because once I know that I'm safe I'll stay in your hand forever

                 

                I worry that you won't ever be able to recover from your pain and I want you to ask me if you need my help

                 

                I cry because I might never follow my dreams and you'll never hear my true voice

                I am special cause you helped me and supported me when I started singing and daring cause  you encoraged me to take risks

                 

                 

                 

                I understand that you are supporting me in every way you can because you love me

                 

                I say that you are the best mom in the world because you care for me

                 

                I dream that I will become a chef cause I want to have a great career in your footsteps

                 

                I try to get better at cooking because I love doing it with you

                 

                I hope that I will be able to have a sister my age cause I want a friend to love me just as much as I love you

                 

                I am special cause  you helped me and supported me when I started singing and daring cause you encoraged me to take risks



                Haiku

                Mint Leaves

                Mint Leaves smell of joy.

                Delight is inside the leaves,

                It is hard to find.



                Animals are trouble

                leaving the farmer's land

                as rubble.

                Being herbivores isn't that easy

                 

                awake and eating

                the entire night

                asleep and quiet

                when the day is light

                 

                When the grass grows tall

                can't resist

                dinnertime

                can not be missed!

                 

                Down here

                is safe

                up there is not

                down here I will not get caught

                 

                I'm related to a hare, and my ears are as tall as a bear. What am I?




                                                                                                                                           Rocks

                                                                                                                                    bumpy,slippery

                                                                                                                              cracks,forms,destroys

                                                                                                                        kids,landforms,outdoors,walked on

                                                                                                                               entertains,feeds,wets

                                                                                                                                    soft,smooth

                                                                                                                                         sand

                 

                 

                Cave Kiss!

                                                  Drip, drop! Drip drop, waterfall.

                                                      Refreshing fun in the sun,

                                                         Cool cold water!

                                                              Drip Drop!!!

                  Harmony

                  melodious, lively, joyous

                  daughter of my sensitive child

                  loving nature, Disney or out for a ride

                  happy to go, excited when there and sad to leave it behind

                  reptiles, roller coasters and spooky houses are fears unsettling to my mind

                  inter peace discovered helps me erase the tears

                  I lay my head on my pillow to sleep and forget about my fears

                  dreaming about Northampton Drive and the pride that lives within

                  Walking tall, fearless, stringing chords constructed with the stoke of a pen

                  Holmes
