Learning from students: Alliteration

Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series.

Then she created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in the PowerPack. Here is a digital postcard for the anchor poem by Renee La Tulippe.

Then, she shared the response poem the student wrote in relation to the mentor text poem-- full of alliteration!

Finally, Christi also recommended additional resource books that students might enjoy in her final slide:
