Welcome, welcome, welcome to all poetry goodness in the blogosphere! I am posting early as I will be busy later today.
I’ve been participating in the summer poetry exchange organized by the talented. Tabatha. This week, I received an exchange from her. It’s like she was able to look into my childhood and saw I loved fortune tellers as a child.
You have played with these, right?
Exchange (8) Celebrate (9)
Experiment (10) Feast (5)
Imagine (7) Vanish (6)
Mix (3) Open (4)
When you lift the flap:
Song or question A storm or window
Castle or cake. Saturday or summer
Cocoon or egg A mammal or monster
Danger or surprise A dream or doctor
Yesterday, I had time and sat at Starbucks, playing with this. I saw a couple of smiles from some kids sitting near me.
HAIKU (mix, cake, vanish)
mom mixes a cake
we make it vanish
ACROSTIC (feast, summer, exchange)
That arrive in your mailbox
Ready for some magic?
You’ll be surprised
Tabatha sent me a blank fortune teller. My head is spinning with ideas on how to bring this into the classroom when I sub next year. Thanks, Tabatha!
