Remember Colours with Poetry
Poetry is a great way to have fun with colours. Writing poems about colours will help you remember them. You don't have to write perfect sentences. Just have fun. Try these three different styles.
Write a colour in a vertical line on a piece of paper. Use the first letter to write a word or phrase that reminds you of the colour, for example:
There are 5 senses that help us understand our world. We use our nose to smell. We use our tongues to taste. We use our eyes to see. We use our ears to hear. And we use our fingers to touch. The world is a colourful place and we can use our 5 senses to describe it. Follow the pattern here and write your own colourful poem:
In this type of poem you have to choose two different colours. One goes in the first line and the other goes in the seventh line. Follow the pattern to create your own poem. When you are finished your poem will be shaped like a diamond.
