Students are working on learning about poetry and writing some as well. We have learned about patterns in poetry. For example students were tasked with trying to write an ABAB poem where the first and the third lines rhyme, and the second and the fourth lines rhyme. They also were introduced to acrostic poems which do not need to rhyme. Here are a few student examples .
E agles eat dead elk.
A lways lives in a big nest.

E agles are amazing birds.
