Notebook Page - Pod of Pentapi
by Hope, Georgia, & Amy LV
Some words are just plain fun, and 'octopus' is one of those words. Today I began writing a different word-fun poem, and somehow this one just showed up on the page. 'Must be those pentapi in my bloodstream pushing their way to the surface. After writing today, my daughters and I sat by the side of our town pool and drew all of these silly pentapus pictures.
Students - The neat part about writing this poem was substituting a different prefix for 'octo'. Now I want to try listing all kinds of words with prefixes and suffixes and play a little mix-up game. Give it a whirl, and if you write anything interesting that you would like to share, please send it to me at amy at amylv dot com, and I would love to feature it in an upcoming blog post.
