4th & 5th grade Writing Workshop - The Poetry Lab

  • Read and Write Kalamazoo 802 South Westnedge Avenue Kalamazoo, MI, 49008 United States (map)

In The Poetry Lab, students will use methods of observation and playful strategies to embark on the process of writing poetry.  Students with play close attention to their surroundings and incorporate the images, words, sounds, and scents they observe into their poems.

Students will step outside their usual creative process to create original works of poetry that engage all five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.  By interacting with sets of elements and objects in The Poetry Lab meant to spark the imagination, trigger memories, and incite new ways of seeing the world, students will leave the workshop with new drafts of writing and tools to jumpstart future writing.
