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 that you wanna show or not
It starts when we get upset about something
This week, Monique and Stacy came to class and presented Monique’s book. We learnt that it’s okay to cry and that life can be a moody, stormy with waves of emotion but to remember the sun will always come back and shine.
Many thanks to Monique and Stacy for presenting and sharing their book.
Also to Catherine and Jessie.
