Yesterday 80's Throwback and Today World Autism Awareness Day with a Poem or Talent

I really miss my family. 

Wednesday, April 1st  2020
This is a daily struggle that I am personally dealing with. I have had good moments and not so good moments. My family and I talk often, which helps. This delightful throwback is from 1985. I was two years old. My sister is a newborn.  I hope you are all hanging in there. Keep holding on and be safe all! 

Autism Awareness Day with a Poem or Talent

  Thursday, April 2nd 2020
 On the right I have two photos for today's virtual week! One is myself rocking my indigo Autism Awareness T-Shirt. The other is a poem written to me by a 4th grade student from years ago . I keep it on my refrigerator in a plastic covering. Tori is probably in college now.
The poem is a tad hard to read so I will retype it below.

The Art Festival

In the city way out west
The art festival was the best
There were no bad pests
Pictures of eggs in a bird's nest.

Picasso with his abstract
Blowing my mind away
O'Keeffe won't get last
In a flower contest, anyway.

Carving wood and stone
Sculptures of life
The artist can own
Making things with a knife.

So come to the city
Where we have a ball
You'll learn stuff like me
At the Art Festival!

Can you Create a poem of your own? 

A 2nd grade student made this for me years ago!
  • Rhymed poetry- Poems which have rhyming patterns. 
  • Free verse- Any style and way work!
  • Narrative poetry- Poetry which describes a story or scenery. 
  • Haiku- A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.
  • Acrostic - Choose a topic and for each first letter add a word, phrase, or sentence.

Ms. Kimmel's Haiku...

Art is everywhere.

You can make art every day.

What inspires you?
