The Five Senses Poem

We started our multigenre project today! The first thing we worked on was picking a theme that could be carried through the entire collection of writing. If you missed class today make sure you think about what you might want to write about. After a little brainstorming we started writing poetry. Today's poem was a sensory poem. Each line focuses on a different one of the five senses (smell, sight, taste, touch, hearing) and how your topic is related to them.

Here’s how to write a Five Senses Poem:

Line 1: Emotion or idea and what color it is
Line 2: What it tastes like
Line 3: What it sounds like
Line 4: What it smells like
Line 5: What it looks like (a comparison)
Line 6: How it makes you feel

There are examples available for you to look at if you want to, just ask Mrs. DeRaps or Ms. G!
