The next generation of great writer...

I try to send a little note in with N whenever she takes her lunch to school.  The other day I sent in an acrostic poem using her name.

She loved it and has been writing poems like it ever since.
Here is the one I found in my pajama drawer from her:

Cares for everyone
Awesome at loveing
Runs not much   (This is my favorite line)
Rock'n out
Everyone loves her

I have decided that this is the perfect way to introduce her to quatrains, cinquains, haiku and others.

She's brilliant, I tell you.

I'm very VERY impressed with the words/ideas she came up with - she is brilliant. I've already been mulling over things to tuck in Harper's lunch next year so I'll be stealing this idea... kthnax.

Also, "runs not much?" SNORT!

I love this poem! I think it should go in a frame on your dresser, or perhaps on the wall next to your bathroom sink so you can read it every time you brush your teeth.

I also love the idea of teaching poetry this way. Hmmmm.....I might be stealing this idea....
