(What does "in residence" mean? I explain it all in this post.)
On Monday, we looked at scientific third grade Fibonacci poems. Those poems were grounded here on Earth. But outer space is also part of science and nature.
Today, let's head to the stars with third grade Fibs. I love the scientific facts that Jay includes in his poem.
by Jay K.
Can be strong or weak.
Secures all of us to the ground.
There's not that much gravitational pull on the moon.
If there was no gravity, we would be floating around
in outer space with no air.
What Space Is

Comets and the Sun
Go away as I now wake up,
Many miles away from my planet where I live.
Robots rule the world
Robots are low on batteries
Check out what today's robots are capable of:
Great job, third graders.
Thank you to the Northfield teachers and families for giving me permission to share the students poems! I will continue to post student poems until our Poets' Tea in June.
I did some fibs with a young class a couple of weeks ago, very fun. It's great to hear what you're doing with the classes Laura. Love that 'clang, crank'.
Lost in space awesomeness. :)
Hi, Linda and Michelle. Linda -- the more I work with the Fib form, the more I like it for emerging writers. Just enough structure for comfort + exploration.
I laughed about the robots being low on batteries :-) Very inventive poems! I liked the photos, too. Sam is looking dapper.
Fun poems. Love the low batteries too. :)
Fibs are so interesting, the way they gain momentum and grow. I really like the poem about gravity and how the beginning feels like strong gravity and by the end we're floating away on a very long line.
Love these poems! We have just watched Gravity, and so I can appreciate even more deeply the sentiments shared here in verse. :)
