#sorrynotsorry poems

Following our district curriculum, we are doing a poetry unit for 3 weeks. We have written all different kinds of poems.

I came across this book a few years ago:

These poems are based on the note William Carlos Williams left his wife. He apparently ate the plums she was saving and left a note saying "I'm sorry, they were so delicious and so sweet". The original #sorrynotsorry.

I had my students write their own versions of these poems.

  1. This is such a fun activity! When I did it with eighth graders, their poems were hilarious! Just wanted to say- this activity is great for almost any age! You brought back a delightful memory for me with this post!
