DAY #4: Found Poetry (playlists or book lines)

DP #27: Poem of the Day

Read the poem of the day thoughtfully. Then, write a response to it. Your response can be an explanation of what it means, a focus on a particular line you like, or it could be the inspiration for your own creative response in the form of a poem, story, or memory. The key is to let the poem inspire you to write.

Take ten minutes. Be prepared to share with the class.


Today, you’re going to use your phones to create a FOUND poem created from your favorite song lyrics!

Another option is to use the classroom books and pull lines that you like.

Just like yesterday, the key is that you don’t add any new words to the poem. Work with what you gathered.

Once you’re happy with your poem, write it in your poem book on day four. You may also choose to cut the words out of your writer’s notebook and glue them into your poem book. Consider posting it on your blog as well!
