Arlo and the Orca

A collaborative poem written by all of Room 8.This poem expresses our feelings about anger looking through the eyes of Arlo and the Orca by Monique Walker


Anger feels like letting your rage out

A clenched fist

Blood,salty sweat

Growling and yelling

Rough and hot

Like a red face

Anger smells like danger

Like air

Shouting and screaming

Painful and hurtful

Madness and crazy actions of destruction

Like smoke

Burning cold

A fire raging and growing limitlessly

Anger is an emotion we want to show or not

It starts when we get upset about something


This week Monique and Stacey came to class and presented Monique’s book.We learn’t that it’s okay to cry and that life  can be moody and stormy with waves of emotion to remember the sun will always come back and shine.
