Z-boy’s class studied Italy this year for our school’s annual multicultural fair. During Writer’s Workshop one day, they wrote “Italy Is” poems. Z’s is below. He told me that some of the lines were inspired by a classmate or the teacher, but even so, I think it’s pretty good for an 8 year old!
Italy is pizza like you never tasted before.
Italy is art and Florence is its heart.
Italy is a string of pasta going from Sicily to Rome.
Italy is a home for every one.
Italy is Galileo looking through the night sky.
Italy is a boot in a world of shoes.
Z-boy Jonski, age 8.
And here’s a link to a poem he wrote in kindergarten.
