Today, students learned about poetry, specifically about American poetry.
One definition of poetry is "The art of rhythmic literature, written or spoken."

We read and listened to three American poems:

"The Crocodile's Toothache" by Shel Silverstein (read that here, watch it here)

"The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe (read an e-book here, watch the Simpsons version there, read about Poe in Korean here)

"The Country" by Billy Collins (watch & listen to the animated poetry here)

Then students worked with a partner to create a rhyming couplet using two rhyming words.

Examples will be posted below!
