As a first task for writing poems, we looked at different emotions. The children were then given a formula to write their own emotion poem using their senses. They were encouraged to make use of descriptive language and to try to incorporate the Figures of Speech in their writing.

It was interesting to see how well the kids managed to express their experience of their specific emotion through their poems.
