Writing

Today, I would like you to finish your poem from last week with a final verse.

 

Read the last verse from the poem below to remind yourself of what the last verse looks like.

See if you can notice how it is different from the other verses. (You may want to highlight these for later if you can)

 

•          Final verse: about the box used to store these memories / ideas within.

 

 

Now think of how you will describe your magic box.

 

Your task today is to write the final verse of your poem trying write it in a similar format to the original, describing the box.
