Earlier this month, The Marquis worked with LafKids connect, a program where students from Easton Area Community Center and Easton Middle School meet Lafayette clubs for a one-hour long interactive meeting, to get students interested and educated about creative writing. Because our club encourages and fosters creativity, we challenged the students to write a poem and then give each other helpful feedback on how they did. We gave the students five prompts they could choose from or be inspired by:
- Write a haiku (three lines; five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables)
- Acrostic poem about FALL (with one line per letter)
- Write five lines about something in your room
- Write six lines about what your favorite color tastes like
- Write a seven-line poem, with each line describing a day of the week.
They came up with some great pieces! So great, in fact, that we figured they should be shared. Please enjoy the creative works from the students of LafKids Connect!
Mondays are the worst.
Tuesdays are still pretty bad.
Wednesdays however are pretty okay.
Thursdays are better.
Fridays make me feel relieved.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
And Sundays are decent for me.
I love fall so much!
The leaves are changing colors
It has just begun!
The leaves change colors,
leaves fall to the ground softly,
fall is so much fun
Lizard in my room all it does is poop and eat.
The tv in my room plays my fav movies.
The bed in my room all it does is for me to chill and sleep.
My Halloween decorations I love Halloween.
My childhood toys.
All the leaves are darkened
Leaves fall from the trees
Little kids jump in the leaves
I like my bed
From my bed you can see lights
My bed is teal
My lights are purple
My bed is big
My lights are little
Fun leaves falling falling down
All around you and me
Lovely leaves fluttering around
Laying there all around
Beauty is the sky in the morning
Eating s’mores and sitting by a fire
Amazing movies to watch
Under the tree watching the stars at night
The sound of the crunchy leaves under my feet
In new store seasonal clothes
Funny new jokes about the cold weather
Unique colorful paintings in the store
Loving the decorations of Halloween
Laying in bed
Fun you can do a lot of things
A lot of pumpkins to carve
Lots of leaves to rake
Learn how to make costumes
Fall is coming!
Leaves are falling
Leaves are changing colors
Halloween is coming!
Fall is fun!
Falling in love with autumn
Falling leaves in the blustery morning seemingly trying to relax
Autumn smells and smiles in the cafe
Laying leaves calling my name to just fall on them
Laughing fall memes on my bed
What a wonderful day ahhhh…
I have this stuffed animal on my bed.
My stuffed animal is named pink monkey.
It is a monkey that is pink.
I love my pink monkey every time I get mad or something
I go right to it and it calms me down.
1, It’s pink and it tastes like jellybeans
2, It’s red and it tastes like strawberries
3, It’s green and it tastes like a salad
4, It’s orange and it tastes like cheese
5, It’s blue and it tastes like blueberries
6, It’s rainbow and it tastes like skittles
Fun looking colors on trees
A lot of allergies
Lots of dirt bike riding in the woods
all the leaves
leave your work
leaves to jump in
The leaves are turning brown
It’s getting colder now so it’s gonna be Halloween
Fall leaves are falling.
Everybody loves fall too.
It brings us good cheer.
I have a toy pink cat
With a hat for the cat but it didn’t work
The pink cat wasn’t fat
Its eyes glow
I wish it could grow
We would like to thank all the students and volunteers who helped make this possible and give a special thank you to LafKids Connect who organized this event. We hope you enjoyed it!
