GALLERY of DADS

As a surprise for Father's Day we created portraits of our dads and then wrote cinquain poems about them. We began with a simple circle for the portrait. We're sure you'll agree, they're a very handsome group!
See a few examples of our cinquains below.

~ CINQUAIN POETRY ~
What is a cinquain? It is a five line poem.
Here is the pattern we used for our poems:

Line 1 - Dad's first name
Line 2 - Two adjectives describing him
Line 3 - Three "ing" verbs naming things he does at work and home
Line 4 - Four words that tell a feeling about him
Line 5 - One word - what you call your dad
Here are a few examples of our cinquains:

Ron

researching, helping, comforting,
the best father ever
