I, too, t h a n k y o u. . .for being a great teacher and for
posting these fascinating and revealing diamantes. To the children who wrote them, I say, Join hands and take a bow. How fitting
in this case that diamantes sounds so much like diamonds.~~'Pea' <3
~~PS: Should I have said diamante poems? Call it poetic license.;)

It is amazing what a dose of confidence instilled into students or anyone for that matter can do to their morale and esprit de cor !
Excellent write

Great job all of you! Oh these take me back to my school days. Seems that the fear is universal but through working and sharing together, it all works out. Right, kids? One step at a time, one day at a time and all of a sudden you're there. Thanks, Molly...

Reviewed by Barbara Terry 6/5/2006
Molly, it seems Ash is the only one not worried (giggle). These are just too precious. The children's personalities come through very clear here. Isn't the talent of children marvelous? Give them all a "well done" and a smile for me.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love. May He also bless the children, that they may never lose this innocence. May He be with you and all the children always, and at your sides constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Even with a very structured assignment like this you can see the very different personalities of the students. Very interesting and entertaining!

THANK YOU for all the comments for the children's work. More coming next year.

Constance to answer your question, the kids were exploring how they felt at the beginning of the term -unsure, frightened- as opposed to how they feel today as they ready to move on to 5th grade -confident, happy, assured.

Reviewed by Constance Gotsch 5/24/2006
Why are they all the same theme this time? That's almost disappointing. They're good, but what happened to the playfulness of different ideas?!

Give these kids a big round of applause and the teacher also for instilling in them the fine art of poetry. It's not a sissy's game.

Well I feel good, knowing the future poets will be creative having learned all of these fine forms! Bravo to all of you, and your wondreful teacher!;-)
