This fall, in writing class, 4th grade studied poetry. We practiced different types of figurative language such as metaphors, similes, onomatopoeia, and alliteration. We also learned about line breaks, stanzas, powerful vocabulary, and decorative language.
To finish our unit we did a project called “Paint Me a Poem.” Students picked a famous work of art or architecture that inspired an original poem.
Here are a few examples of our poems that we shared at the December Assembly.
