It's wonderful to see my students in a different perspective. We are so driven by testing, Common Core requirements, and evaluating texts, it is wonderful to take a break and allow them to be creative. It opens up the opportunity to see kids in another way other than just as students, but as kids who can enjoy and appreciate that words come in different forms, including lyrical and poetic.
