Dear Children and Parents,

Writing food for thought: Due by Friday December 22ndth.
Only a few poems fell on our desks this week. We are hoping for a big bunch this week. Writing task: We had our first snow this week. It looked like a wonderland. Can you use your words to write a little poem about a snowflakes journey to the earth? Pretend you are a snowflake. Where would you land? How would you move? Would the wind push and pull you? It does not have to be long. Just try to create a picture with your words. Just try...and have fun writing snowetry.
Make it our Holiday gift: A Snow Poem for My Teacher: Priceless!
