Friday Flashback Fail - Poetry LOVE

So, I failed to get the Friday Flashback Linky up yesterday.  What can I say?  I didn't get home until 8:00pm yesterday and the brain was officially fried!

If you were in the same boat, I hope you'll link up today!  Here's a peek at our week...

We've been LOVING poetry in room 205!  This week we made these precious Poetry Pops to show that our Poetry is popping with onomatopoeia!!

And, to review alliteration, we created these Alliterainbows!

We've had a lot of fun locating these literary devices in poems that we're reading and also learning to use them in poems that we're writing!  Both of the above activities will be in a new Poetry Packet that I'm finishing up now (as in today, I hope!)

We've written a LOT of different types of poems over the last two weeks using our Poetry Styles #1 Unit and being inspired by authors that we've read.  Here's a look at a few that are ready to be published.
We've got even more styles to learn about and write next week, but once we're finished we will be publishing them into hard-bound books.  They are always SUPER excited about this!  Here's a look at a few of their covers that they worked on designing this week...
I got a TON of these hardcovers from a grant I wrote YEARS ago and they have been fabulous.  Unfortunately, I have now almost depleted my supply!  {Maybe another grant needs to be in my future?}  They are from Lintor Publishing if you're interested in them.  They come with the binding paper to use with them.

Poetry + Music (see my last post about my new Kidz Bop CDs) = student love....
This one put a BIG smile on my face because it was from a student who is not prone to writing "love" notes.
And this one was extra special because she referred to a poem we studied in class about question marks being sea horses.  And, well, because she loves me like her mom.  Boy, do they know how to make you feel better after a L-O-N-G rough week! :)
