Visual Writing - Before and After
Before - poem by a third-grade girl : Scissor Razor sharp, Cuts through paper as if it was rolling down a hill, Swiftly it finishes the paper, and the paper is in half.
After - poem by a third-grade girl : My Scissor The crocodile, eats it’s paper, It’s fangs bite, Like a werewolf. It’s sharp claws,chop through the paper. CUT! CUT! CHOP! CHOP! As the swords and knifes come together. The stork opens it’s beak And then smashes it closed, The alligator snaps for its food. That’s my Scissor.
