English 1 CT

September 4, 2018

This week in English I CT, students have been exploring the world of poetry. Students used their own lives and experiences as a foundation for creative exploration and poetry writing.  Students created “I Am” poems that delve into subjects both concrete and abstract while keeping themselves as the main theme.  As part of the creative process, students used personalized artwork to complete their final project. 

 Following are some examples of original poetry:

Student 1

I am loved and loyal

I wonder about my family’s health.

I hear things that I shouldn’t say.

See things no one else see’s.

I want everyone to be treated the same.

I am loved and loyal.

I pretend to see others future.

I feel loved by everyone.

I touch the hearts of my loved ones.

I worry that my family will leave me.

I cry when someone I love abandons me.

I am loved and loyal

I pretend to see others future.

I feel loved by everyone.

I touch the hearts of my loved ones.

I worry that my family will leave me.

I cry when someone I love abandons me.

I am loved and loyal

 

Student 2 

I am adventurous and creative

I wonder if others are making their dream come true

I hear people believing themselves

I see myself trying hard in the future

I want my family not to suffer

I am adventurous and creative 

 

I pretend to understand everything

I feel confused

I touched the soccer trophy

I worry that I'll be laughed at

I cry when my mom cries

I am adventurous and creative 

 

I understand if I do my homework I get good grades

I say respect others

I dream of having a family

I try to make my dreams come true

I hope to not get bad grades 

I am adventurous and creative

Student 3

I Am courageous and caring

I wonder what the future is going to be

I see new friends that can stay forever

I want to escape reality

I am courageous and caring

 

I pretend to be a voice actor

I feel like a vampire when I stay up all night

I touch ghosts when it is devil’s hour

I worry about friends when they go through depression

I cry when people call me a her

I am courageous and caring

 

I understand how people treat me

I say Live A Little

I dream about having a music career

I try to save up to go to Indiana University

I hope to meet people in South Korea

I am courageous and caring

I am optimistic and outgoing

I wonder if teachers like me

I hear myself going to a four- year college

I want to be someone in life 

I am optimistic and outgoing

 

I am optimistic and outgoing

I pretend to act like things don’t hurt

I feel the eyes on me when I present 

I touch the positive things in my path 

I worry I’m going to disappoint my family 

I cry when I feel guilty about something

I am optimistic and outgoing

 

I am optimistic and outgoing

I understand you don’t keep any thing in life 

I say just do the things that are right 

I dream to have my own place to live 

I try my best to have a good  GPA 

I am optimistic and outgoing

 

Student 5 

I am spirited and determined 

I wonder if soccer is my thing

I hear a cheer in my head that says you are bold

I see Cristiano Ronaldo in the field playing with us

I want support from fans all over the world

I am spirited and determined

 

I pretend to have hope within me

I pretend to touch the soccer ball within my feet

I worry if have bad soccer skills which cause us to loose the game

I cry when we lose the champions ship game

I am spirited and determined

 

I understand that our team will win the game

I say lets have hope and compassion to win this game

I dream to be Messi and get trophies

I try my hardest to beat other teams

I hope for us to go to the finals 

I am spirited and determined
