5/6 Writing Club

Charlotte Agell shared the following information about the exciting first meeting of the 5th/6th grade Writing Club!

Sixteen eager writers came to our first 5th/6th Grade Writing Club, during which I was ably assisted by Maxen Hathcock, grade 9. We went with our notebooks to harvest words from the community garden. Here's a group poem, as just one example of the bounty:

Summer leaves us coated in fragile pine needles the yellow sun beams on the green grass
the grass is growing yellow,
Birds fly toward the sun

The thermometer leaves the seventies 
and won’t come back there for a while....

Autumn arrives in leaves prancing and dancing
around the gnarled roots of the maple tree
Dandelions wither and withdraw their flowers in sad farewell 

Leaves fall off the vine

As one season becomes another
with the death of sunflowers and the birth of pumpkins leaves twist and turn, falling from a rainbow of trees Summer becomes autumn
in a burst of color all around us
The humidity goes south, the frost arrives

Are you ready?

by the September Group of 5th/6th Grade Writing Club 2013
