Poetry- it's a Piece of Cake.....

We went to the computer lab to find about 100 perfect poems to recite. I walked around helping and guiding students into finding their poems. I had a blast. The students were into it. I only had one student complain.

"I hate poetry Mrs. Aakhus"

"This is boring. Mrs. Aakhus."

The other students started getting angry with her.

She continued whining.

Over and over. Finally, I took a look at her and said "Have you ever been given a piece a cake that is not your favorite cake? And when you had that cake, shout out 'This cake stinks!' I bet you haven't. You only need to state how much you hate poetry once. After that, you're ruining it for the rest of us. It's rude."
