We just completed our second week of the Twitter Time :: Color/Colour Poem Project. 



The object of this collaborative project is to create digital images, share original poems, and publish through our classroom Twitter account using the hashtag #clrpoem! Each week a color of the visible spectrum will be showcased! Everyone is invited to participate!


ROY  G  BIV 

One way to remember the visible spectrum is the
ROY G BIV acronym.
(red-orange-yellow-green-blue-*indigo-violet)

We kickstarted the RED week with a poem about our special friend Jolly George. 


That prompted a comment from England and a question from New York City. 

Which followed with our verse about Jolly George.

This poem from Ms Kirsch in New York City was a great one, but needed a photo to complement it! 








So I shot a photo of an apple and gave it to the students!

How do I collect the photos and poems? One way is via Google Classroom. Here is a screenshot for next week, What is ORANGE?



We are looking forward to next week's Twitter Time!
