My watercolor cow...no relation to any cows in Round 2...and there are a few!
Voting for these bouts is now open, and close this Tuesday.
My first round word was "imbroglio" - this round is "untenable"! Lots of challenging words and fun kid poems in this round!
It is not too late: If you have a classroom or are a homeschooler - register your students as a class, have them read, talk about the poems, and then decide how they'll vote!! You will feel extra ready for April's poetry month. They may want to set up a classroom challenge on their own with a word of the day to write to??? Or not. And of course, any adult can go there to vote. You will need to register with an email address before being able to vote. All poems are geared to PreK through grade 12 - but most are aimed at about the 8-13ish age range.
And don't forget to put your Ekphrastic poem on the padlet for the chance to win a jar of jelly beans. Drawing is March 31 9 pm...the day before Easter!
