Noun Poems

We learned about the difference between a concrete and an abstract noun yesterday. We had a selection of concrete nouns and another one of abstract nouns and we put them together to make places or objects. We came up with ideas such as the Shelf of Sorrow, the cupboard of Friendship and the fridge of truth. We thought about what these things might look like or what they might contain and then we wrote a short description or poem.

We wrote them very quickly as we didn’t have very long but these are some of the things that we created.

The Shelf of Friendship by Holly Mae

In a deep, dark room lived a shelf
A shelf of friendship hanging on a wall
And on it were ……..
A framed picture of two joyful girls sitting on a bench,
A book of wonder and two buddies, a boy and a dog
And a record lying there.
But out of all, the shelf was most important
As a group of four built it one hundred years ago.

    Hi this is Maya,
    Me and Hannah had no idea what to do ours about, it was meant to be the bag of hope. I had just come back from my music lesson so I had no idea what I was doing. Me and Hannah had about 2 sentences in ours.

      Hello Mr Robertson, Thanks for commenting on our poems. We hope your class enjoyed creating their noun poems. Some of us found it quite hard.
