    I really enjoyed reading the verbs you used in your poems. I met a turtle face to face for the first time last week. A student at our school brought it to show me and my class. Have you felt a turtles shell? What do you think it feels like?

    Hello Mr Cobb and class, they are some fantastic pieces of artwork on the turtle poetry. Did you enjoy this? It sounds and looks by the comments that you have had heaps of fun watching the film. Your class blog is great! I love your 100 word stories and it amazes me how well your class can blog and write stories! Please visit my blog at .

    Hi Mr Cobb’s class,
    We read your poems in class toady and really enjoyed them. At first we thought they were Haiku poetry but then realised they were free form. We really enjoyed the descriptive words that were used and the way you presented them.
