1 To create a pocket to hold your poems, draw a large U or rectangle on construction paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Decorate the pocket.
2 Cut out your pocket using Crayola Scissors. Glue the edges with a Crayola Glue Stick onto another piece of construction paper. Keep the top and inside open to hold your poems.
3 Read some poetry to get an idea of how poets use the rhythm, pattern, and meaning of words to create a mental picture full of feelings and ideas.
4 Write your own poems with erasable colored pencils on white paper. Write about a topic, feeling, or question that interests you. Pick words that best describe your mood or ideas. Draw pictures to go with your poetry.
