Today they shared their amazing color poems, inspired by Eileen Spinelli’s classic picture book,
IF YOU WANT TO FIND GOLDEN (Albert Whitman / Illus. Stacey Schuett).
Here’s one of my favorite lines from the poets in Room 504:

After they read their poems to me, we had some more fun with metaphors, and then I challenged them to write a poem to give to next year’s class, about Mrs. Howard.
Dear readers, here is the result:
Beware of Mrs. Howard
by Room 504
Thank you to the WRITERS in Room 504, and CONGRATULATIONS ON EVERYTHING YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED during this crazy year. Special Thanks to your fabulous teacher, Mrs. Howard–and all of the educators (and parents) out there who have stepped up in the craziness and made learning fun and meaningful.
Happy almost SUMMER, my friends.
