8th Grade Studies Poetry

Eighth graders have been studying poetry and are seen here working in poetry stations to create their own unique poems.


One station was for “found poetry” which is using cut out words from newspapers to create a poem.

Another station was “blackout poetry” which is taking a page from a book and selecting a few words to create a poem while blacking out the rest of the page with designs.

The third station was “paint chip poetry” where the students took a paint chip sample and used the paint color names to create a whimsical poem.

The last station was a typewriter where students could create free verse poems on an old typewriter. 


The students were so enthusiastic to be able to explore the art of writing poetry through unique and creative ways. One student said “I can’t wait to go take this home so I can post a picture of it on Instagram!”
