This week at Stretch and Sing, we tried something new that turned out so well, I wanted to share it. We drew 6 cards, each with a different word printed on it. From those six words, we created the following poems. The underlined words are the ones that sparked our creativity and delight in our imagination.
I toast the New Year
With glasses of buttery rum.
The blustery activity of winter
Makes you think of a bad storm
And weep for bountiful spring
When we will eat raspberry cake.
The colors, the blooming flowers, green grass and happy hours
I sit by a stream, the sun beams
Drinking juice and
Eating smoothe yogurt.
The thrust of a golf ball goes flying through the air
With the greatest of ease
Like a parrot
Leaving the nest
I recommend this little project for any group, no matter the age.
