Poetry Box bubble time: watch my rain and snow poems and try my activities

This week it is been raining and snowing in Aotearoa.

It has been cold.

It feels like a Cat-in-the-Hat moment when we stuck inside and we have to INVENT INSIDE things to get warm and not be bored.

Writing poems might get me warm and I am never bored. I especially love writing rain poems!

 

Here is my ‘When I am cold’ poem from The Letterbox Cat

 

 

 

Here is my ‘Rain’ poem from The Letterbox Cat

 

 

 

Some rainy snowy things for you to do:

 

Write your own ‘When I am cold‘ poem.

Collect as many cold words as you can and then make a poem pattern with them. Record yourself reading your poem pattern.

Use your cold words to make a poem picture.

Find out three fascinating facts about COLD and hide them in a poem.

 

Write your ownRain‘ poem.

Collect as many rain words as you can and then make a poem pattern with them. Record yourself reading your poem pattern.

Use your rain words to make a poem picture.

Find out three fascinating facts about RAIN and hide them in a poem.

 

Do anything of these things for WIND nor SNOW!

Have you ever had an astonishing or surprising or magnificent or scary or fascinating snow or rain or wind experience? Turn it into a poem or story or picture or comic and send it to me!

 

 

Here is where you send things

send to  paulajoygreen@gmail.com

please include your name age and name of school

don’t forget to put WEATHER challenge in subject line so I don’t miss it

don’t put your surname on drawings or paintings or collages (Poetry Box policy)

 

There is no deadline while we are living in our bubbles! Every Friday I will post some work by children. I will always answer your emails but not straightaway. If I haven’t replied after 3 or 4 days nudge me as I may have missed it.

(I will have pop-up mystery giveaways for the other activities every Friday when I post your work.)

Scroll down my BACK TO SCHOOL blog post and you will find a list of things to do and watch and listen to.

kia kaha

keep well

keep imagining
