This is my playground for poetry written for children with ideas and inspiration for writing your own poems. Come on in. Sit for a spell, have a cup of words to swirl around and make your own cup of poetry. I'm so glad you are here. I hope you'll find the Kingdom of Poetry a fun place to be.

I am a smartboard
in your classroom.
I replaced the chalkboard
who now feels doomed.

He misses the children,
can't hear their news.
He feels discarded
and has the blues.

     So, I've set up a problem in this poem, the chalkboard is being discarded.  Can you write the rest of the poem?  What is going to happen to rescue the chalkboard?  Have fun playing with this idea.  Happy writing.


  1. Joy,
    So sorry to hear that the chalkboard has the blues.

  2. They are being replaced,and it is tough getting old.
