Memory Poems

I borrowed this idea from Georgia Heard‘s wonderful book, Awakening the Heart.  Kids create memory poems based on something they’ve seen in nature.  We close our eyes and recall a memory, then fill out the box below.  Play around with the order of the words, try starting with varied images…rearrange the lines…add on…there’s your poem.  Or, take kids outside and write a poem in the moment.
