I’ve always loved quotes and poems. I’m an English teacher, so I try to cultivate a love for those same things in my students.
Earlier this year I was watching a movie and absent-mindedly doodling. I ended up writing one of my favorite poems completely in a circle.
Here’s “You Mustn’t Quit,” which is an anonymous poem popularly credited to Edgar A. Guest. I just wish I had written it on unlined paper 🙁
Of course, you wouldn’t have to use “You Mustn’t Quit.” And you wouldn’t even have to write in a circle. Any shape will do. In fact, you don’t even have to use a poem. Quotes or Bible verses will do, too.
I’m thinking of having students choose a poem and do this next year, but I can’t wait to do more of these for my own use.
I hope y’all have a great weekend!!
