The Telling Room

We had an amazing morning at The Telling Room, a nonprofit writing studio in Portland.
 We warmed up with an activity called "Polaroid" where we had to freeze and represent something in a scene. Our scene was during a volcano eruption in Pompeii.
Then we got to walk around Commercial St. and use our 5 senses to to describe our surroundings.  
When we came back inside, we used the words and phrases we wrote down to create haikus.

 Thanks to Marjo, Thew, and Myles from The Telling Room for all your help.Thanks also to Tyler and Amelia's dads, and Seth's mom for chaperoning. Check out our haikus! (You can click on a picture to make it bigger.)
