Is there anything more lovely than fall, this beautiful season of colorful trees, bright blue skies, and cooler temperatures? Sigh. It’s such a wonderful series of months to experience.
This week our second grade blogging team is featuring activities and printables related to poetry. I’ve created copywork from the poem “Autumn Fires” by Robert Louis Stevenson. “Autumn Fires” is a simple poem with vivid imagery I enjoy.
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
I thought it would make a lovely copywork printable for our poetry week. This copywork includes both print and cursive so you can use whichever works in your situation. Here are some previews.
Please download a free copy to use with your children or students. (You can see all of my copywork products here.) Just click on the image to go to my shop where you can download your free copy.
Please fee free to share this post with other parents and homeschoolers. Thank you!
