SOL Tuesday - Graffiti, The Sequel (a haiku)

SOL Tuesday -- Graffiti, The Sequel (a haiku)

I still have a few 1st and 2nd graders that occasionally visit my small group room first thing in the morning, and they still like to leave their mark. Here is the latest version of their graffiti: 

(Thare is a shark in the water.  But don't worry, you can still hav a happy day!
For some reason, I find this to be quite amusing.)

This latest graffiti inspired me to write a haiku.

Children's Graffiti

Colorful greetings, 

Reflections of whimsy, and 

new passions revealed.

  1. This is revealing. The freedom of your first and second graders expressing themselves speaks so much to what their interests are and what they are thinking. We have to allow students to express themselves in different ways. Thank you for sharing.

  2. How nice that the children like to visit your room and leave a day brightener.

  3. This is a wonderful, positive poem about graffiti, which isn't often viewed as art. Now I'm thinking about the historical significance of graffiti and feeling inspired. :-)


Comments are welcomed, and very much appreciated! :-)
