I visited a classroom of fourth graders today. We talked about:
what a poem is.
the purpose of poetry.
rhythm and meter.
how to write a poem.
I brought some of these favorites of mine along.
And at the end of my presentation, I handed out these cute mini water-color paint sets.
With this written on the back of each one.
I had a blast. Thank you to Mrs. Fuch's fourth grade class for having me!
