A collaborative poem written by all of Room 8. This poem expresses our feelings about looking through the eyes of Arlo from ‘Arlo and the Orca’ by Monique Walker.
Anger feels like letting your rage out
A clenched fist
Blood, salty sweat
Growling and yelling
Rough and hot
Like a red face
Anger smells like danger
Shouting and screaming
Painful and hurtful
Madness and crazy actions of destruction
A fire raging and growing limitlessly
Anger is an emotion you want to show or not
It starts when we get upset about something.
This week Monique and Stacey came to class and presented Monique’s book. We learnt that it’s ok to cry and that life can be moody and stormy with waves of emotion BUT to remember the sun will always come back and shine.
Thank you Monique, Stacey and especially Jesse and Catherine for performing such an amazing dance for us.
