Table of Contents Poem

I was searching through The Practice of Poetry looking for some fun new ways to approach kids writing their own works and came across an assignment called "Index/ Table of Contents Exercise" by Lee Upton. I liked the idea of their life being a listing of where they came from and where else they can go from here. When finalized, the assignment came out as, "List ten significant people events in your life. Think of your life as a book; these are the chapters. Group together what can be compiled. Make sure to create a creative title for each chapter using a poetic term. Also the numbers of pages in a chapter should be reflective of their importance. "

Beautiful sunset welcomes me to earth, The joy and bringing of my new birth....Ch. 1

I was walking soon enough,
And my parents life became quite tough.....Ch.2

At age three I was banging on pots and pans, Making a huge clatter whenever I had the chance....Ch.3

My dog and I were best friends and we sat on the grass, Making memories that would always last.....Ch.4

Kindergarden was a blast!
So was first through fifth, and it seemed to fly past...Ch.5-10

About sixth grade I had my first huge crush, It was a ton of drama and quite the rush!......Ch.11

I had some great teachers my seventh year, And it was only the one in History that gave me some fear!....Ch.12

Eight grade at PMS was full of eight-o-ritis
And all I wanted to do was get out of that place.......Ch.13

9th grade is here at last, fullfilling all my past dreams, Creating new roads that will take me very far.....Ch.14

I don't know what lies ahead behind an unopen door, But I know there will be memories, of that I am sure...Ch.15 - ?

Wow! I just want to say that I think everyone did an absolutely amazing job on these poems. I really enjoyed reading them! I loved how the page numbers showed how important events were in your life. I also really liked the creative names for the significant events. Half of them were SO DEEP that I couldn’t even figure out what the writer was trying to get across! This definitely increased the greatness of the poems because I began pondering what the writer was trying to say and I went really into depth.

chelseas said...

These poems were so fun to read because of the diversity. Some of them were very deep and involved, while others were funny and made me laugh. I just want to say great job to everyone! Like Alex, I really liked how the page numbers showed the importance of the event!!

jordanh said...

These were so neat. I loved seeing everybody catagorize their lives with just a few words. A real insight. I really liked Stefo and Morgants'. Both had a twin/triplet. So neat.

morganw said...

I loved these poems because nobody was trying too hard to get them to work. We just wrote, and they turned out great. We were not trying to make them rhyme or fit together in any specific order (though sometimes we succeeded anyway) so they turned out really good. I thought it was slightly amusing, in a dark, twisted sort of way, that so many people put "the dark ages" as one of their life chapters. Not that it is funny in any way (I put it too, afterall), I just think its pretty cool that everyone was so honest about the hardships or troubles in their lives.
