Be a Writer: Class Week 2 – Day 5

Be a Writer 2.5

As the final day of class began, the students were immersed in poetry. They wrote and shared various types of poetry as the day progressed. Campers wrote “color” poetry, a “How does it feel to be…?” poem, and two poems from an activity using random vocabulary “Poetry Cards.” After writing the poems, each student illustrated a Poet-tee — a T-shirt using lines from their original poetry. Other activities included finishing the poetry book, Hormone Jungle, and taking notes on the last three SFTs. The highlight of the day was the arrival of the class anthology, Daydreams and Drawings. The 100+ page book looks fabulous, thanks to The Center for Gifted Studies. What a wonderful group of young adults we had to work with this summer. We are so proud of each and every one of these special individuals!
