Stearn’s Elementary School students recently participated in the Massachusetts Science Poetry Contest. Below are some of their lovely poems. I was going to add photos, but these words create their own images. Don’t you agree?
These are diamante poems. A diamante poem is arranged in a diamond shape and composed of verbs, adjectives and nouns relating to a specific topic.
These poems published here on Dr. Augie’s will also be published in the “Massachusetts Science Poetry Book K-2.”
A special thanks to Principal Jeanne Bednarski and teachers extraordinaire: Betty O’Neil and Maryann Sherman (Maryann was my one of my favorite elementary school teachers! How cool is that?) for sharing these here on Dr. Augie’s website.
