I Love to Read: Hum -- Written Words
The poems in Hum are incredible and full of vivid language! In this activity, you'll create your own incredible poem by brainstorming descriptive words about yourself.
Recommended supplies: writing paper, pencils
- Write your first name on a sheet of paper vertically. Skip a space after each letter. Each letter should have its own line.
- Next to each letter, write a descriptive word that describes you. Your descriptive word must start with the letter it is beside. Aim for 3-5 descriptive words per letter. If you're stuck, ask friends or family for help!
(Example) T - tall, timid, tranquil, thin
O - old, obedient, original, odd
M - mighty, moody, manly, modern
- Using those descriptive words you just wrote down, create a poem! Imagination is the key. It does not have to rhyme.
