National Poetry Month: Poem 23 of 30
My students have been collecting ideas for poetry in their writer's notebooks. This week we were talking about some of our favorite things. I was reminded of this quilt (and my grandma who made it). We will soon take some of these ideas and turn them into poems. I thought I'd get started here.
