I AM Poems

A few weeks ago we wrote "I Am" poems.  It's a great way to get to know students.  (And a great thing to display for parents and visitors!)

They turned out beautifully and gave me some interesting insights into our young writers. 

Check out the beautiful language, specific details, and creativity in this one! 

(Sorry to scan in B& was lovely and colorful!)

Happy writing!

ps... sorry for the lack of posts lately...silly cold.  That's what I get for bragging about my excellent teacher immune system!


  1. I LOVE "I Am" poems. We wrote and shared our own that we created in a writing class I took years ago. We had to publish it in a special way that showed a little bit of our personality. I still have mine and I LOVE it! The kids' always turn out so sweet!!!

  2. That's awesome, Holly! It is perfect for all ages, including adults!
