The class of CE1, CE2 and CM1 has been exploring and discovering French poetry. Our last work was on the calligrams, which were created by the French poet Guillaume Apollinaire. A calligram is a poem whose shape will be of an object, animal or person.
After having explained and discovered calligrams written by different poets, we experimented on a calligram on the sun. Then, each student chose something to write his/her calligram. We’ve had quite a selection: a cup of hot chocolate, a horse, a flower, and a face, among many others.
The CE1, CE2 and CM1’s works are in the hallway so please come see their beautiful and very talented productions.
