Hailstones & Halibut Bones

Hi Friends!
My first grade class has been learning, reading & writing about poetry
for the past two weeks.  I shared one of my all time favorite
poetry books with them called Hailstones & Halibut Bones
by Mary O'Neil.  It has beautiful poems about colors.  My class just loved it!
After reading it, I asked my kids to think about their favorite color and write
a poem about it.  I thought they did a great job!  Here's the book and a few of their poems.
