Yesterday at Poetry Club I shared the MarCH CHallenge offered by Heidi Mordhorst at "My Juicy Little Universe." I have a few poets who responded to the word, "pitCH" today.
From Kim Doele's Poetry Club at Wealthy Elementary School:
The first is by 3rd member, Teagan :
The batter's at home.
He taps his bat.
The pitcher's arm swings
Here comes the pitch-
It's going, it's going and
It's out of the park folks!
The second is by 4th grade member Eli:
Sa-Wing bada bada
The pitch is coming down the lane
The crowd is shouting, "Sa-wing bada bada."
Bathroom using, I had ta!
Suddenly the crowd went
Was this gonna get violent?
Here's the pitch,
It was so fast it could've been thrown
by a witch!
The ball connected with the bat.
In the crowd it hit somebody
The third is by 4th grade member Hania:
You need to be
You look quite ugly to me.
Look at you. You're a mess!
Go put on your dirty dress.
Put on the heel with the flower
You look like a dressed up tower
Put on the slipper with the sun
Let's tie your hair in a bun
I'm told I am the pro master
but you look like a complete disaster
