Arlo and the Orca

A collaborative poem written by all of Room 8 This Poem expresses our feelings about anger looking in the eyes of Arlo from Arlo and the Orca by Monique Walker.



Anger feels like letting your rage out

A clenched fist

Blood, salty sweat

Growling and yelling

Rough and hot

Like a red face

Anger smells like danger

Like air

Shouting and screaming

Painful and hurtful

Madness and crazy actions of destruction

Like smoke

Burning coal

A fire raging and growing limitlessly 

Anger is the emotion you want to show or not

It starts when we get upset about something

This week Monique and Stacey came to class and presented Monique’s book, we learnt it is okay to cry and that life can be moody and stormy with waves of emotions, but to remember the sun will always come back and shine.

We would also  like to thank Monique for writing Arlo and the Ocar,  Stacey for presenting it to us, doing activities,and coming to our class on Monday.
