Sixth Grade Confession Poems

April is Poetry Month and to celebrate students in Mrs. Fykes’ Skills class were asked to read a confession poem by William Carlos Williams. (See below) They used this poem as a mentor text to write their own confession poems. The sixth graders confessed all kinds of things like stealing sweets, avoiding chores, and putting off homework. 

This Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten 
the plums that were in
the icebox 

And which 
you were probably 
for breakfast

Forgive me 
they were delicious 
so sweet 
and so cold
