In Mrs. Ranney's Class
we are currently studying poetry.
We have learned that poems can create word pictures
and are meant to be read aloud.
We have also learned that a good poet can
say a lot in just a few words!
Speaking of just a few words...
A Hink Pink Poem is a rhyming pair of words that answers a riddle-like question!
Sometimes these are humorous and even silly!
Q: What do you call a lengthy tune?
A: a long song!
If it's a Hinkie Pinkie, it has two two-syllable rhyming words!
Q: What is an improved member of the alphabet?
A. a better letter!
It can even be a Hinkety-Pinkety and have two rhyming, three-syllable words!
Now, that's challenging!
Here are a few Hink Pinks created by students in our class!
