When my children were young, I used to make up ABC stories for them at bedtime. Beginning with "A" I would invent a story that used every letter of the alphabet. Until I read Carole Weatherford's poem, I didn't realize that I was being an abecedarian.
In honor of Poetry Month, I am sharing Carole's poem here. She is hoping to publish this as a picture book; can't you see the pictures in your mind?
Go ahead and try writing an ABC poem or story with your students or children. You never know what you might come up with--abecedarian poems and stories Abound Beyond every Corner! And if you or your class writes one, please let me know. I might post it here!
Darkness descends. Eerie.
millions by the moon.
