Poetry is so exciting to do in the classroom. Children get a chance to really express the way that they are feeling in words. I loved that the teacher encourages the students to say what they think rain sounds like. As a class they are participate to mimic the sound of rain. Using something like this in the classroom will make students feel that it's okay to join in because everyone is doing something together. My favorite part was the teacher explaining how expressive and passionate you can be in poetry. I think this is something that we can really share with our younger students because it will also encourage journalism because they are writing down their own thoughts and feelings!
