Poetry Anyone?

So,'s been a while since I have been here and I am so sorry to leave you high & dry!
Testing at my school has been CUH-RAY-ZEEEEEE!!
  I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the testing tunnel....
But, I'm here now & today I'm talking poetry!! 
I was convinced that I would HATE teaching the poetry unit to my firsties, but I was pleasantly surprised. 
I taught them shape poems, 5 senses poems, poems where all the lines begin the say way, etc...
By the end of the unit I decided to surprise my cuties with their VERY.OWN.POETRY.BOOKS!!
I thought some of them would pass out from the excitement!
I promise, ya'll, it was seriously not that fancy...
Here is a little snippet of how they looked...sorry I didn't snap more pics!
 Here is the girl version...they are only half sheet of paper sized so I can get more bang for my paper usage!
 Here is the boy version.
 Some of my pages had a picture to inspire the poem...this one was popular with all of the students! 
The Green Eye!
My baby!
I love this one! :)
 Some of the pages had titles for inspiration & they had to add the illustration.
kind friend
sweet person
hard worker"
This one was cute...
"Bat woman
can fly
part bat
cool character
so cool and a super hero"

So, there is a little poetry fun from my cute little firsties! Like I said, everything was made on 1/2 sheets of paper so that I could save on my paper & copies. Also, I think that there was plenty of room for their poems so it worked out great & I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! :)
