I showed my students the book, Well Defined, Vocabulary in Rhyme.
It is a really neat book taht takes vocabulary words and personifies them. The words int he poem also define the vocabulry word.
I read some of the poems to my students, we created some together and then sent them off writing their own.
These are some rough drafts of poems that we created:
Never expects anything to go right
She immediately rolls her eyes
She shakes her head
She says, “no way will that work”
Pessimism is easily annoyed with optimism,
can’t stand kudos and utterly hates bravo!
He likes to guess in an educated kind of way
When trying to figure it out he writes it down
He assumes he is right, that his guess is true
He likes to get together with experiment and have rendezvous
“I think, I believe, I assume” are phrases he blurts out.
