Recently Otter did a project in History Pockets where he learned about how the Egyptians worshipped cats. He made a cat booklet and wrote some poetry inside after learning about several different styles. I like combining different subjects when he learns about things. This was, of course, a combo of language arts and history.
His attempt at a couplet:
Oh cats, they’re so lovely
when they cuddle up on your chair
And then they merrily walk around
and you don’t hear a sound.
Jump, crouch, purr
They snarl at dogs.
Here’s the site we referenced to write the cinquain: Cinquain Poetry.
