Learning from students: Cinquains

Here's the next installment in my series featuring my students sharing poetry with THEIR students. 

Here, Charlotte focuses on PowerPack 4 of YOU JUST WAIT and shares the mentor poem she used and her students' writing efforts in response to that mentor text. Plus, she includes related poetry books that offer additional resources for student writers.

First, here's the poem by Janet Wong, "Any Tongue," and the digital picture postcard that Charlotte made to accompany the poem:
Next, here are response poems by two different students as they think about Janet's "Any Tongue" poem. 

A wonderful
place for great burritos
and an awesome place for tacos

Sweet and yummy
Everywhere there's donuts
Sparkles, icing, different flavors

And finally, Charlotte recommended these additional poetry books, so that students could have more examples of poetry about food and about place.
