This is poem #4 in this week's write-about-one-topic-in-many-ways-challenge. At this time, a second class of students will be joining us as well as some middle school enrichment students from Caledonia Mumford and homeschoolers Nathaniel and Jessica. Do check out Nathaniel and Jessica's poems now if you can. Too, I have been enjoying the fifth grade poems from Jamie Palmer's class through their wonderful kidblogs and hope to share some of them with you soon.
Students - Yesterday, I enjoyed exploring this weird sock question - Do socks have a right or left? They might, but I have never figured this out.
I wrote the first draft of this poem in the first person, "When I am asleep..." Rereading and revising, I decided to write it in the second person, or "you" voice. This brings the reader in more directly and feels face-to-face. You might try this in your poem for today. Speak right to your reader...using the word "you."
Another thing I learned: I am not the only person who has ever wondered about this question. These answers made me giggle.
Please let us know if you might join in writing poems about one topic for the next three days! All are welcome to play.
