This was our last week of Co-op classes for this school year. I really enjoyed teaching creative writing this semester. This week I taught the children about Poetry using the talents of my friend, Anne Peterson.
I wrote a review of her recently published book “Real Love: Guaranteed to Last” about a month or two ago. You can read my review here.
Currently Anne is working on a book of poems for children and was gracious to share them with our class.
Today, I have Hannah, my 8 year old here helping me out by answering some questions about our Creative Writing class. She will give some of her thoughts on Mrs. Patterson’s Poetry. She also wants to share a poem she wrote in our Creative Writing class.
Which poem did you like the best in our Creative Writing class this week?
“I liked the one about the baby at the laundromat. Or the one about the fire where she says, ‘You’re God. I’m not.'”
What did you like about those poems?
“Um… The whole thing.”
What do you like about poetry?
“It’s fun. It’s good practice for writing.
It’s easy. I like doing it.”
So what did you think about our Creative Writing class at Co-op?
“It was fun. I want to take it again.”
I would say that means our class was a success. 🙂 I am very grateful to all my friends that helped me out by sharing their talents with my students.
Hannah has written a poem and drawn a picture about it.
