Bullies to Buddies Poetry
I'm so excited! Art was in my office recording a students' story and he explained that people could go onto our web site and hear the creativity of our students! I have held 3 "Def Poetry Jams" at our school and many of the students poems were motivated by our "Bullies to Buddies" effort. This got me thinking....why not share this poetry with the world, not just the people that came to the jam. So, today we recorded some of the poets reciting their poetry! This is the first of the poems that we will post over the next week.
Aquil, Asmar, and Kyrell are all very talented writers in the 5th grade! They came together and wrote a poem that they could recite. Asmar and Aquil are identical twins. This poem is about when one of the twins is fighting with a mutual friend and the other twin is trying to motivate them to make up and continue their friendship.
