What My Students Learned About Poetry Today

Today was our last day with our Third Grade Writing buddies!  The fifth grade students wrote “I am” poems and took a quiz using a site called Socrative.  Here are some selected learnings that kids posted using this site:

I learned that poetry is not bad after all.

To make ideas then write a poem

To list ideas before writeing poems.
