Thank you so much, Erica! They've really enjoyed writing them, illustrating them, and publishing them onto their blogs!

Just saw your class website and I love it! Im a college junior and my Pedagogical Grammar course is teaching "mini lessons" and I got assigned prepositions. Thanks for posting student examples of a fun activity that students from any age group can use!

Hi Mrs Allen!

I am a newly qualified teacher in England and I love these poems that your class have written. I am doing something similar for an interview next week and I was just wondering if there was a particular poem these were inspired by that you gave the children as an example?

Thank you for the comment! As far as an example poem, I don't have one--except for the one we wrote together as a class, which was about monkeys. I will be posting some of the new prepositional poems my current class created, so stay tuned!
