🐙✨We are enjoying Memorial Day weekend and are headed to go do more swimming, but wanted to share my 4th Grader’s Octopus poem that she worked quite hard on! (Using the rhyming prompt words I gave her a few posts back). Her great great great grandmother was a published poet and she has such a knack for storytelling, so I wanted to encourage in this block! Some tips on helping writing creative poetry with children: ⭐️ Give some rhyming prompt words... they don’t have to use them all, but it gets them started! Poems don’t have to rhyme but it’s great practice to try to do so! ⭐️ Have them play around with the words to start until they come up with great ideas! We also read aloud other octopus poems others have written for inspiration (but not to copy, though that may be good practice too). ⭐️ Once they have a general idea of the words they want to use and what to say, help them figure out how they could put the rhyming words at the end of the lines! Take your time with this part and work with the child’s temperament so they don’t get frustrated. Clap out or stomp out the lines so they can get an idea for poetry rhythm. It doesn’t need perfect rhythm, but this way they can hear if a line has too many or too few syllables. ⭐️ See how the story is developing... where do they see it going next based on available words or their imagination? ⭐️ Help them if they get really stuck and give different word choices and order arrangements on the chalk board. Play it like a fun game! ⭐️ Don’t make the poem too long. Some children might do 4 lines some might love it and do 10! For her poem, I gave her words that really fit well for how Steiner said to describe the lower “head” animals as sensing and tasting animals, and this really helped her focus on those senses! This is great for her coming back to her human being poem and the human being (as per Steiner’s advice in his lecture). Her poem goes: Tentacles that can sense and taste, don’t let good crabs go to waste. The sly octopus slithered away, she hid in her dark den all day. She slid out in the night and ate, she loved her food it tasted great! A shark came and she sprayed her ink, invisible octopus in a blink! 🐙✨
