5 word Art Journal Prompt
Today I played a little in the journal. I took the first five words that popped into my head. Then, created a poem using the words or variations of those words.
The words were rolling, create, cold, fall, shine. Here is what I wrote.
Falling from water
Rolling, creating waves
There it shined
in the coldness.
It was a fun little exercise and I enjoyed how 5 simple words led me to this piece. I can't wait to try this one with students!
