SHORT AND SWEET POEMS 1

We start a new project with my fourth- and fifth-graders. It will be named “SHORT AND SWEET POEMS”. These are short and sweet poems in English for the little but important things of the world that surrounds us. They will be presented in a visual way using the online WordArt tool.

Here is the result of our first session. We reflect, present, make associations on the topic of “Home”. What is home for us?! In my pupils’ visions, it is orange, purple, yellow, red … It sounds like their grandma’s voice or a love song, or a TV voice, or a dog’s barking… And it tastes like ice cream, banitza, a quince. All known, nice and loving things for everyone, especially if they are related to some memories… Children are wise on their own and it is nice to listen to them sometimes.

Workshop Session #1: Home

 

My home is orange

It sounds like a love song

It tastes like  an ice cream

It smells like a tulip

It feels like a blanket!

 

 

My home is orange

It sounds like my dog’s barking

It tastes like a pancake

It smells like a rose

It feels like a teddy bear!

My home is purple

It sounds like my mum’s voice

It tastes like a banana pancake

It smells like a lemon

It feels like a jumper!

My home is white

It sounds like my brother’s song

It tastes like a cake

It smells like a rose

It feels like a cat!

Defne E., 4th a grade

My family is white

It sounds like a bird song

It tastes like a biscuit

It smells like a snowdrop

It feels like a teddy bear!
Rumi, 4th a grade

My family is white

It sounds like my favorite song

It tastes like a pancake

It smells like a rose

It feels like a teddy bear!
