April is poetry month!  We were introduced to poetry at the end of March when we had the poet, Ted Scheu, come to our school.  He not only inspired us to read and write poems, but he also came into our class and taught us about a specific type of poem called a simile.  We learned that a simile uses the words, “like” or “as” to compare things.  We wrote “I…” poems to compare ourselves to different things.  We hope you enjoy them!
