    Hi Julie,
    I handed this freewrite to my two oldest this morning and they both decided to write poems. I thought they both did a great job, and they were both excited by what they had written. When I told them that sometimes you put kids writing on some of your online venues they asked me to send a copy of their poems to you!! (p.s. I completely understand that you get reams of writing!!)

    As an aside- before bravewritier, my son equated writing with a large plateful of yams (he detests yams!)

    Here is my daughter’s, age 9:

    When the fish bites
    When the dark comes
    When I’m feeling sad
    I simply remember some beautiful things
    And then I don’t feel so bad
    Silver-white snow flakes
    And flowers that God makes
    A mighty old oak tree
    And fishes in the sea
    Little brown sparrows
    With sun on their wings
    These are a few beautiful things

    I’ll send my sons when he finishes typing it up.
