Students will love creating a list poem based off of bumps and bruises and writing their finished poem on a giant bandaid.
Ouch Poetry List Poems
Introduce and hook students with a great poem, “Sick” by Shel Silverstein. Brainstorm all of the things that would make someone say ouch and get ideas flowing for creating a list poem.
Writing their completed poem on a yellow piece of construction paper turns their poem into the gauze potrion of the bandaid. Students outline their list poem with marker to make it stand out and add the word OUCH at the end.
Glue the poem onto a bandaid-shaped piece of large yellow construction paper to complete the display.
