A big day for Word of the Month Poetry Challenge

Hi everyone,

This is a special day. For the first time in years we have the pleasure of reading poems inspired by the Word of the Month word that are written by students!

I am very grateful to Jane Heitman Healy for selecting stellar examples of “Surprise Poetry” written by Joan Upell’s 8th grade ELA classes, Cheyenne-Eagle Butte Junior High, Eagle Butte, SD, Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. Joan, please tell your students how much I love their poems. I’m delighted to share them with all the readers who are going to love them too.

Please go to the top of the page and click on the box marked YOUNG POETS W.O.M. POEMS. I know the eager poets will enjoy hearing your thoughts about their work. You are going to find their poems surprising!

  1. David, thank you for this outlet for poetry by adults and students. I was so pleased that these students took me up on my challenge to write SURPRISE poems to post here. Now I’d better get crackin’ on my own!

    • Jane, I’m thrilled that you challenged these students and that they responded so beautifully. Many, many thanks!
