Being A Writer

October 25, 2014

Being A Writer

Corning Elementary adopted a new writing program this fall and both teachers and students have been eagerly learning the new material.  The Being A Writer program from Developmental Studies allows the students to grow both academically and socially, as they work with peers and independently on writing ideas.  One of our first writing activities focused on poetry, with examples from well-known poet Shel Silverstein.  After listening and reading a few of Silverstein's humorous poems, the students were asked to try and write their own funny poem.  Fifth grader Rebecca Inman found this assignment especially fun.


I Think...

I think my toes are a little too small.

I think my legs are too tall.

I think my fingers are too fat.

I think my ears look like a bats.

I think my nose is too sharp.

I think my mouth looks like a carp.

I think I think too much!
