A Gallery of Poems

As the end of the year draws near, students are feeling the pull of warm summer days to come. This week we were able to channel that excitement into poetry. Students were introduced to a variety of poetic forms and elements.  Each student then wrote an original poem. 
We have created a "Poetry Gallery," which we filled with tributes to a season packed with sights, smells, and sounds: splashing water; hot dogs off the grill; bike rides; the water park; and lemonade. 
Summer break is so close we can see, feel, hear, taste, and smell the season.

Thanks, Jaime, at TpT for this clever craftivity!
