Students will write odes (celebratory poems) to the joys of summer and warmth! Students will use Golden Details—sight, smell, hearing, taste, simile—to reflect the bright glow that summer brings. After students write their poems, they will create a collage to go alongside their poetry. Whether it is the fireflies glimmering in the night or popsicles on a hot day, summer is worthy of celebration through poetry and art! Students can email us their odes to be featured on social media!
