WRITING – Poetry
Today we are going to learn from NZ author Paula Green and create a poem about clouds.
Maybe there is a little city
in the clouds where everyone
rollerblades to school
and swims in fluffy swimming pools,
eats cloudy floss and cloudy buns
and climbs very tall ladders to
pick cloudy plums.
When it’s cold, it’s puffy mittens
the nana in the cloud is always knitting,
and when it’s hot it’s ice-cream soda
the cloud granddad is fizzing and floating.
from The Letterbox Cat
Your challenge today is to make a cloud poem. So go outside and look at the clouds, collect some words and then develop them into cool sentences. Share your poem with us in the comments section.
