I gave myself the writing prompt from November 16: My Unusual Thanksgiving List Poem.
My result is a list poem called Thanksgiving on My Uncle's Farm. I published it on my poetry blog Poems of Silliness.
I know I teach writing better when I write regularly. I know I teach reading better when I read the books my students are interested in.
Next year I may give this writing prompt as homework. I found when I needed to write a poem about my experience to share with my class, I pay attention to the details.
