I have lots of picture poems in The Letterbox Cat. When I was showing them to some children on Saturday I got an idea for a challenge. Make an animal poem that is also an animal picture!

1. Pick an animal.

2. Collect lots of words that describe that animal.

3. Play with the words and make patterns.

4. Use your patterns to make animal pictures.

5. Send to paulajoygreen@gmail.com. Include your name, age, year and name of school. (jpegs are easier for me but if it is one page I might be able to take a screen shot of it)


DEADLINE: Monday September 22nd
