Howland – ELA: Poem Challenge – 3/27

Teacher: Howland (


Happy Friday everyone!

Poets choose to write poems for a lot of different reasons, from expressing their environment with a sensory poem to trying to express how they feel to entertainment. I’ve shared with you two poems by Shel Silverstein, “Crazy Dream” and “What Did”. My challenge to you is watch the video and then try to write a poem. It can be any kind of poem; maybe you want to write a sensory poem about what you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch. Maybe you want to write a poem about how you’re feeling right now. Or maybe you want to write something silly. No matter what you choose share the result with us.

Stay safe and stay learning!

I’ve attached pictures with close ups of these poems in case they were hard to see in the video.
