Here are a few facts to kick of today’s challenge… Most people do not smile until 11.16 on Monday morning. Monday – the least rainy day of the week. Monday is the only day of the week that is an anagram of a single word: ‘dynamo’. The only film with Monday in its title to win an Oscar was ‘Closed Mondays’ which was voted Best Animated Short Film in 1974.
Considering these Monday facts or using your own Monday thoughts…
Write a poem about Mondays. What do you like or dislike about Monday’s? Could you make an acrostic poem or a limerick? Remember to only spend up to 15 minutes on it. Simply pick up a pen and see what happens. If you don’t want rhyme or rhythm – go free verse!
If you have a bit more time…
If you’ve tried one type of poetry why not try another? Swap from a limerick to free verse, acrostic to a couplet.
Could you find the words to describe Monday? Was that easy or difficult? What other day would you write a poem about?
If you’d like to – share you poem. You could type it up or send us a picture of your page. You can always just share how you found the challenge. Do this on here and/or on your social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
