Printable for National Poetry Month: Singing a Song of Oneself
- MakeBeliefsComix Offers Poetry Month Printable
For Students to Write and Sing The Songs of Themselves
If you're looking for a creative way to help students think, write and draw about poetry during National Poetry Month, you'll find a useful graphic printable at MakeBeliefsComix.com that asks the question:
`'Imagine that, like the poet Walt Whitman, you are writing a poem, a rhyme, a song of your self. What would you write? What song would you sing?''
For a copy of this National Poetry Month printable and more go to http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Comix/ and click on the PRINTABLES button at the bottom right. The feature also offers comix templates featuring characters from the web site along with blank talk and thought balloons that students can fill with text to create their own comic strips.
This new MakeBeliefs PRINTABLES feature is the latest addition to the two year-old comic-generator site where educators and students from 180 countries come to build their own comic strips online and practice language, writing and reading skills. These new printable pages are taken from the popular Make Beliefs and Pocket Doodles for Kids books by Bill Zimmerman and drawn by cartoonist Tom Bloom, who illustrated the best-selling Children's Letters to God.
