I give you:
The results of Poetry Friday!
We only had four people completely fail at the poetry form. But that’s okay. We shan’t tell them that they have failed. But we did get some very nice cinquains today!
Here are some of my favorites:Bamboo Slim, Elegant Upgrowing, Standing, Waving in the breeze My favorite plant. -Anna Life Colorful, wonderful Growing, trying, enjoying, Just like a bird Happiness -Wish Mushroom Cute, delicious Plating, growing, eating Full of nutrition we need it! -Alice Xue Children Lovely, Cute Growing, Learning, Enjoying All our Dreams Angels -Cindy Pip Beautiful, lovely Sing, playing, dancing Full of wisdom Fantastic girl -Dot Daughter beautiful, lovely playing, drawing, dancing keen on cartoons my love -Eillien Boy lovely, helpful singing, dancing, acting always full of energy my son -Jane Beijing Beautiful, wonderful changing, coming, going with many tourists Welcome to Beijing! -Celia
But, as always, some people don’t quite get what’s going on. But that’s okay. The next two aren’t bad per se, they just weren’t quite what I was going for.A little boy Pityful, Helpful, faithful to the puppy Treat it as his own friend. He can pay it with all full price I love you! My little boy! beautiful. loneful. warmful. wonderful.
So anyways, today was a lot of fun for me at least. And ninety percent of the poems turned out well! We also played charades for awhile which was a lot of fun. Especially when I made Dot (one of the men in the class) do Cinderella. That was amusing. I also made our class monitor, Jack, do “Fish out of water,” since it was quite a bit more difficult than the others.
So all in all, a good day.
