Outside

The kids had a friend over yesterday and it was nice enough to play outside! The stuffed animals played with our deer decorations.

Intro to Poetry

My daughter surprised me by asking to learn about poetry the other night. Luckily, I had an easy idea for writing a first poem tucked away in my brain- acrostics. I found a “poetry for kids” website and showed her an example. Then she wrote her own.

And loved every minute of it 🙂

Her first one is called “Tom” after our cat.

Trouble
On the couch a lot
My pet

Her second was “Tree”

Tall
Rest in its shade
Everything is peaceful
Everything is beautiful

Her last one was “Snow”

Soothing
New as a forming cloud
Outdoors like a bird
White as a dove

I told my son about this type of poetry in the morning. Here is his poem called “Creeper.” A creeper is a type of monster from one of his favorite games; it goes toward things and then explodes.

Curious
Running
Evil
Enemy
Packed with gun powder
Especially mean
Rest in pieces
