One of my favorite poets and artists is Douglas Florian. I have read many of his poems to my students through the years. Last year, I posted some of his poems from his book, Poetrees. Here are two poems from his book, Autumnblings. We are talking about different fall experiences we have using our five senses. We have also talked about the things we like about fall and why, and the things we dislike about fall and why. Florian uses stronger words, love and hate, which describe our feelings more intensely. Please read the poems with your child and post what you like and dislike about fall and tell us why. Happy posting!
