I love rain poems so much we will do rain poems again on Poetry Box this year (and I will share some of my favourite rain poems with you).
But today this is a rainy day for young poets! And it is raining out on Auckland’s West Coast. Perfect.
Draw ten little cloud shapes on your paper.
Go on the hunt for rain words.
Put the rain words in the circle like they are little rain clouds. You have a rain poem!
Now write a baby rain poem using no more than ten words (OH! but don’t worry if you use a few more). You have another rain poem!
Remember you can CHOOSE how many words you have on a line (even one, even two).
Now use some of your words and write a longer rain poem. Listen to the sounds in your poem.
Send your rain poem to firstname.lastname@example.org Include your name, age, year and name of school. Include your teacher’s name and email.
