2.en.56 snail shaped poems

This morning in Science in English we looked at some of the features of snails. Weekend is here! time to slow down a bit and take it easy, just as snails do.

I have found a nice shape poem for you, the author, Sheri Doyle, is a Canadian woman who writes fiction, non fiction and poetry for children and teens. You can visit her blog cliking here.

Thanks to her you can find out some of the pleasures of slowing down a bit.

Look at her  snail shaped poem, read it and think about a couple of things you enjoy doing when you are on a SLOW SNAIL mood.

Enjoy!  Post your comments to the blog and POST  a Comment to Sheri  Doyle’s blog telling her what you think of her poem.

If you are inspired try to write a shape poem yourself. We’ll publish it in the blog.

Some gentle music to slow down even more and help you get inspired

Can you match the words with the pics?

Cobbled, drowsy, lampost dappled

Do we write, eat and live too fast? Yes, I think we sometimes move to fast, so  I recommend you to follow the song’s advice while singing along with Simon & Garfunkel’s The 59th Street Bridge Song


Watch the animation. Do you like it?

How  does it make you feel? drowsy? happy? optimistic? depressed?

[

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.

Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da…Feelin’ Groovy.

Hello lamp-post,
What cha knowin’?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in’ doo-doo,
Feelin’ groovy.

I’ve got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

Now let’s try to sing along

Did you like the song? do you think it is catchy?

Is it   slow?

Is it too fast to sing along?

Have a nice weekend!
