It is so hard to believe that it is now May. This is the month that my baby turns four. I am in denial, so I am going to flash back to April for a bit. April was National Poetry Month. Although I did not feature it much on my blog, I was writing about it quite a bit on The Disney Driven Life.
Over at DDL I used Disney to inspire poetry writing. Using Disney to write acrostic poetry, cinquain, and other forms of poems just seemed natural. To finish off the month, I wrote about being a reluctant poet as a child and how I had to overcome this as a teacher. I even wrote a 5W’s poem about the following picture:
Be sure to head on over to check out my latest Disney inspired poem. My other Education posts there can be found under NDM183 – that’s me!
I wrote about NHL, my seven year old, writing poems with me. What I never expected was my little guy to join in the fun. Yes, suddenly my almost four year old is rhyming and trying to be a poet. I would love to take the credit, but can not do this. I must bow to the amazing minds at none other than Disney – specifically Disney Junior. You see they have a relatively new segment called A Poem Is. During this segment they show children talking about poetry and then feature a Disney poem.
The boys know that I love Eeyore and shared this one with me the other day. I love how interactive the segments are. Thank you Disney Junior for helping to educate young and old alike.
Please stop by A Disney Driven Life to say hello to everyone else that writes there as well.
