Fourth grade connections with Writing and Art

Voices of children
Whir of wings
Bright with the sheen of the dew
Flashed like the plane-tree

Under the stairs
In the coat cupboard
Hiding place
I can't wait to tell

Bushes cracked
I was terrified
Just wait
I heard another shot

These are some recent works by fourth grade students.  I had scrounged some old book discards from the school library and approached the writing teacher and asked her to collaborate with me on this project.  She worked with students to create the emotion poems.  In the art room we discuss how they might illustrate the feelings and the artwork happened with me.  I've been extremely impressed by many of these and would really love to share them all!  You can check out additional postings here and here.
