I am happy to introduce a new page called Creative Corner. From time to time I will be posting photos, pictures, drawings, prose, and poetry created by a student or adult with whom I have the honor of working. I hope you enjoy this page.
Where are the Words?
By Nicole Gardner, age 17
This is a poem
About how it is hard to get the words together.
They just don't come.
It is stressful like foggy weather.
I'm trying my best to think.
What words to say?
But my thoughts begin to shrink.
It just won't go away.
My brain just hurts
From all the stress that follows me,
Like tough stains that won't leave my shirts.
It just lingers around me.
I try my best,
The best I can do.
I enjoyed reading as I wrote this.
I hope you will too.
At this time I would like to introduce Callie, age 11 who just completed a drawing assignment. She selected two metaphors from an awesome book called "You're Toast and other Metaphors We Adore" by Nancy Loewen.
'Ants in her pants'is the picture to the right. Thanks, Callie!
Nicole contributes again. Keep your eyes open for this girl. She is going places!
(We often write problems and answers for an "Advice Column". I loved Nicole's written solution this week.
Problem: (written by me, Debby) "Dear Nicole, My problem is my friends tell me I'm too fat. That hurts my feelings, I tried to diet but I can't!
What should I do?"
Solution (written by Nicole) "Dear beautiful Debby, Don't let your friends get to you like that. You're amazing! If you want to lose some weight,
talk to your doctor o get some answers. Don't struggle through it. Take the time."
Wasn't that sensitive and well put? Nice job, Nicole!
