Rainy Day Poetry

On a partly rainy day, we decided to write garden poetry.

We took a short, drizzly trip to the garden to collect inspiration, and went back to our classrooms to write.

Students wrote about various garden experiences in the rain, including bugs and weeds. We also drew art relating to our poems. Poetry can have guidelines and structure, or it can flow from your heart. The garden inspires us in many ways-including writing!
