Writing poetry with students this week, concentrating on grammar and prepositions.


In the kitchen,

Among provisions and staples,

With recipe nearby,

Over the stove,

Beside the sink,

Into the hot pan,

Beneath a shower of spices,

Under the lid,

Up the olfactory canal,

Onto the plate,

Between teeth and tongue,

Down the gullet,

  3. Wonderful way to teach prepositions. I love the unique words here, too, such as “gullet.” The ending w/ out the preposition satisfies and surprises.

  4. This is a poem that my students will be able to get behind (and next to and maybe in front of). I love this as a way to talk about prepositions. So much fun.
