Welcome to the final 15 Words or Less Poems Day of 2015!
Ready to wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less? (guidelines here)
Here’s a picture I took at the Bell Museum of Natural History on Randy’s birthday last week.
This image makes me think of:
- Camping at night and waking up to see this in my tent. Ack!
- What if cats wore dentures?
- I would not like to be a dentist to a cougar.
And, here’s my draft. I tried something new this week. I wrote my poem and recorded the process using Screen-cast-o-matic. I shouldn’t have used sound–that clicking and clacking gets annoying. But if you’d like to watch the process, here you go:
Well, I don’t think THAT’s very interesting to watch! But I wanted to try out this tool because I think there are some things that might be interesting for young writers and for teachers to actually watch on the page–like the revision process. So maybe I’ll try this again sometime if there seems to be a good use for it. Teachers, is there anything in particular you think would be useful to be able to show students in real time?
Anyway, here’s the first draft:
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count:>) If you leave a poem in the comments, and if it’s 15 words or less, I’ll try to respond!
