POETS PAINT WITH WORDS

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!
