Our homeschool blogging friends at Once Upon A Family recently posted this really fun exercise, which is perfect for Poetry Month :
"A cinquain is a five lined poem that are written in many different ways but here is the format that we wrote them in today.
Line 1 - one word that tells what your subject is
Line 2 - two words that describe your subject
Line 3 - three action words that tell about your subject
Line 4 - a four word phrase that expresses a feeling about your subject.
Line 5 - one word that is a synonym for your subject."
To get Mikro motivated, I had to compose a couple:
Melting, Oozing, Dripping
My favorite yummy lunch
Lounging, Staring, Yawning
Surprisingly errupts, hunting crickets
Bouncing, Spinning, Joking
My heart walking around
Tinkering, Laughing, Talking
Best friend and soulmate
Reading, Writing, Creating
Riverloving homeschooling wife/mom
Learning, Exploring, Supporting
We're all weird here.
Here is Mikro's:
Moving, Thinking, Geeking
Biologist in the Making
And because he is a nine year old boy, he could not help but share the following:
Trumpeting, Popping, Escaping
I laugh, mom cringes
