Yesterday we sat outside and observed the rain falling on the playground. We talked about our 5 senses and the rain. What do we hear? What do we see? What do we feel? What do we taste (if we were out in the rain)? And what do we smell? After we sat outside under the awning writing words or phrases about the rain and our senses, we came inside and wrote poems about the rain. Some wrote an acrostic poem. Some wrote a shape poem. Some wrote a simile poem. Those poems will be sent home next week. We are doing a great job writing poetry!
