When we were learning about poetry, we had the opportunity to publish some beautiful calligrams.

A calligram is a poem, in the shape of the object of what the poem is about. We all picked a different object each and wrote a free verse poem about the object.

We then drew an outline of our topic, and filled the outline with our creative poetry.

What do you think?

  2. Hey all,
    Did everyone like my “Space Oddity” By Chris Hadfield video?
    I hope you all did! Did anyone miss out on seeing it?
    Please reply!
    PS At least I don’t have to remember to call you Mrs Jones and not Miss Lavars. I’d probably just call you witch anyway!

  3. Hi Noah!
    It’s great to hear from you! How is high school going? Wow! I loved your video! It was AMAZING! I can’t believe you made that all by yourself.
    I think everybody saw it. Not all of the students know about the blog quite yet. We are still settling in as I was away on my honeymoon for the first few weeks. I will tell them all you commented though – they were VERY impressed with your video!
