This week the students have been writing Cinquain poems. Some wrote about things they love and some wrote about Australian animals which fits in with our inquiry studies “My Place”.
A Cinquain Poem has a number of patterns but we chose two simple patterns as a guide to writing our poetry
|Cinquain Pattern #1
Line1: One word
Line2: Two words
Line 3: Three words
Line 4: Four words
Line 5: One word
|Cinquain Pattern #2
Line1: A noun – Title
Line2: Two adjectives describes the title
Line 3: Three -ing words
Line 4: A phrase or a feeling
Line 5: Another word for the noun
In addition to publishing their poems the students learnt about uploading pictures to the blog. They drew their animal in Tux Paint (a free drawing program that can be downloaded from the web) and then uploaded it to their post.
You can find the students’ poems under the Poetry Menu link. Why not leave a comment so that we know you’ve dropped by.
