I read through Tom Barrett’s little newsletter that he compiles for his fellow teachers and was intrigued by the little tool that he introduced them to, called Write Rhymes. It helps to compile rhymes (duh) and is a very creative way to get your learners to write a poem. So I tried my hand at it and this is what I came up with……
Good morning last Friday
How did you get here?
I thought you were still far away
You sneaked up on me, that’s clear!
I still had so many things to do-
A whole month seemed so vast
But you in wisdom turned the clock
And now I am left aghast
So take me back to Monday first
So that I can try again
To pick up pieces of my life
That I lost – God knows when!
Very rudimentary and the list of rhyming words did not always inspire me, but it made me think. So this little tool get’s the thumbs up form me. Why don’t you give it a try and let me know (or post below) some rhymes???
