Les calligrammes des CE1, CE2, CM1

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.
