Well, I poured out my heart in a poem for Valentine's Day but I'll do a quick Cinquain format. This is a 5 line poem following this pattern:Line 1: one word naming the subjectLine 2: two words which describe it (adjectives)Line 3: three "ing" words describing its actionLine 4: a phrase with any idea about itLine 5: repeat line 1
contracting pumping circulating
the rhythm of life
This type of poem was a great way to teach adjectives and verbs. We brainstormed lists of words they could use to describe the topic and its action. Of course, you would have kids print this on a heart shape or whatever shape that related to the subject. I've done many about snow on snowflakes!
