Writing Concrete Poems in Library Class! @resvt #vsla #vted

 One-word concrete poem: "Flying"
Can you see the "L" flying?

In collaboration with their classroom unit on poetry, RES second graders have been learning about and writing concrete poems in their library classes. Concrete poems, also known as shape poems, are poems where the arrangement of words or letters on the page add to the meaning of the poem.

Students shared several books of concrete poetry, then they wrote their own. We are so impressed with their creativity!
