Cinquain Poetry

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.


His cinquain:

Soft, happy
Jump, crouch, purr
They snarl at dogs.

Here’s the site we referenced to write the cinquain: Cinquain Poetry.
