Weathergrams by Ms. Corcoran’s third graders

Weathergrams are very short poems of about ten words or less. It comes from sudden insight and hence brevity is essential. The weathergram is hung on a bough or branch in the garden or along a mountain trail. The subject matter is usually seasonal and the weather gram is left out for others to stop for a moment and enjoy. The students used the picture as the inspiration for each poem. Here is what they came up with:

Heron standing still in the shining lake

  

Shimmering little bits of glacial water spilling over the rocks

 

 

Dancing snowflakes tumbling down                                                    

                                                                down                                               

                                                                           down

 

 

Crying raindrops shivering on the silky grass
