"A dolphin is awesome, a dolphin is intelligent, a dolphin moves by flipping its fluke."

One of the first grade classrooms has been studying ocean animals. You can read about their experience as information gatherers on this blog post, Can Dolphins Talk to Wails? I decided to try some poetry about their animals. They returned to the library with the nonfiction books that they each wrote. I encouraged the students to create either an acrostic or a shape poem. I gave them a simple form and they set to work. Check it out. They are pretty awesome.
