Poems for Ornaments

Today we decorated our classroom for the holidays with some Poetic Ornaments. I got this idea from the poets.org site, and decided that this lesson would lend itself to some creativity, cheer, and expose you (and me) to some new poets and poems. Boy, was I right! Everyone who has walked into the room has mentioned how much they love the ornaments we have hanging around the room. Some students even asked me if they were "allowed" to make some. My answer: "OF COURSE!"
