All The Small Poems by Valerie WorthAll The Small Poems is a collection of short poems. Each poem focuses on an animal or inanimate object of some type. They are short, simple and descriptive.
In the many poems that I read from this collection, the majority did not rhyme. The poems dont exactly have a flow to them either. There isnt really a rhythm to the sentences and verses. Each poem is extremely descriptive. It gives a lot of imagery by using an array of adjectives. The poems do not give insight. Unless you are discovering the subject of the poem for the first time, it is fairly simple topics that do not expand awareness. Id say these poems do, however, give a positive stretch. Each poem is extremely descriptive so it really does a great job in illuminating observations and featuring creative word play. If the lesson you were doing were to involve animals, this could be appropriate for that type of lesson. There are a lot of poems about animals and these poems could be good ways to describe the animals creatively.
I thought the book of poems was okay. I didnt really enjoy it a lot because I prefer poems to rhyme and to have a type of rhythm while reading. However, I feel this could be used in a lesson of some sort. If you were discussing using adjectives to describe an object, this collection of poems would be a great example. The poems however did not affect me in any way and I didnt really take much from reading them.

Continue reading Thomas Hatchett Jan And now, where explosions once seared summer's sky with crackling thunderous incandescent delight Only whispers and wisps of smoke remain, Scattered by the breeze, Whithered, then, by rain. And of the evening's reveries precious little can be found: some soured beer in crumpled cans, discarded haphazardly surrounding a threadbare picnic bedspread rumpled beneath the branches of an ancient live oak tree.
Four Fireworks Poems for Kids
Forgot your password? By Weightman , October 14, in Bonfire night. Can anyone provide a simple rhyme about fireworks for us to use for our rhyme of the week after our 2-week half term?
What's that? Oh, Hark, The guns are shooting in the dark! Little guns and big ones too, Bang-bang-bang! What shall I do? Mistress, Master, hear me yelp, I'm out-of-doors, I want your help.
Poetry brings the sites, sounds, and even the smells of a fireworks display to life. The imagery in a good poem about fireworks elicits fond memories of fireworks past, as well as creates anticipation of displays yet to come. There's also the excitement that comes with store-bought fireworks to consider, and this too can be expressed through imagery and rhymes. The following poems capture the essence of a fireworks display, the adventure of a little firecracker thief, the pure joy a box of fireworks can elicit from a child, and the pride of an aerial firework. Stars and spangles light up the sky, No wonder kids love the Fourth of July. A boom, a trail of smoke, and then a loud pop, As colorful sparkles fan out and drop. One after another, each twinkles and dies, Just a moment's pause, and the next one flies.
