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.
