The colour poem project continues.
As we worked on our 'blue' poems we were learning that good writers 'show' not 'tell' - letting the words create pictures for the reader.

We started our poems by writing what blue tastes, feels, sounds and looks like.
We thought carefully about our words.
We were pleased with what we wrote.

We were surprised when Mrs McK suggested that now we should take out any word that said 'blue' and any phrase that said 'looks like' 'tastes like' etc.
We gave it a try, and we think our poems sound even better now! What do you think?

What do you think - did we manage to create word pictures for you?
