A collaborative poem written by all of Room 8. This poem expresses our feelings about anger looking through the eyes of ‘Arlo’ from ‘Arlo and the Orca by Monique Walker.’
Anger feels like letting your rage out
A clenched fist
Blood, Salty Sweat
Growling and yelling
Rough and hot
Like a red face
Anger smells like danger
Shouting and screaming
Painful and hurtful
Madness and crazy actions of destruction
A fire raging and growing limitlessly
Anger is an emotion you want to show or not
It starts when we get upset about something
This week Monqiue, Stacy, Jessie and Katherine came to class and presented Monqiue’s book. We learnt that it is okay to cry, we have many people supporting us and life can be moody, stormy with waves of emotions but to remember the sun will always come back and shine.
We would like to thank Stacy, Monqiue, Jessie and Katherine for coming and teaching us about emotions!
