Martin Luther King Found Poetry

Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other places and putting them together as poetry (a literary equivalent of a collage) by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text.  

Today we create MLK Jr. Found Poems

Celebrating MLK Jr. with our blogging buddies

 The past few weeks we have been learning about civil rights heros.  We have read about Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges and Martin Luther King Jr.  In honor of MLK day we spent some time with our 3rd grade blogging buddies asking each other questions about Martin Luther King.

Write a comment to your friends about the videos they created. Do you agree with their answers? Did they say something that made you think or share an idea you hadn't thought of?  What do you think about working with 2nd grade?

Remember the best comments start a conversation, so be sure to ask a question!
