Today we worked on poetry appreciation by reading 3 poems, “My Device”, “I Want a Dog”, and “I’m Not Hungry Anymore” from the book: No More Poems!: A Book of Verse That Just Gets Worse. We discussed our emotional responses to the poems, after which we put our thoughts on paper. We then played a build-a-poem game as follows: 1 person starts by writing any single word, the next person writes two words and then folds the paper over the first sentence. The 3rd person writes 3 words but can only see the previous 2 words, and so on. The results were some extremely silly (and mildly disgusting) poems! The word of the week was aberration; listen to see if you hear it from any Muons!
