Grade 2FS have been writing Octopoems as you can see below. Octopoems have 8 lines and each line describes the topic as another thing.

 Line one is a colour

Line two is a season

Line three is a place

Line four is weather

Line five is an item of clothing

Line six is a piece of furniture

Line seven is a TV show

Line eight is a type of food

This site helps you automatically create an Octopoem by typing in the boxes. Why not write a poem and copy it into the comments section of this post so that we can read your work. If you are a member of this blog then copy it into a new post.
