About this book
Write A Shape Poem You, too, can write a shape poem. Picture the twirling whirlwind, the rolling tumbleweeds, the hot rays of the desert sun, and the adobe house. Choose one of these. Brainstorm describing words or phrases. Then write a poem in the shape of the thing you chose. When you're finished, draw the shape around your poem.
Before students begin to write, have them develop answers to these questions:
- Which desert item will you write about?
- How does it feel, smell, taste or sound?
- What does it look like?
Students may wish to illustrate their poems and display them on a class bulletin board.
