Slide1What is a zombie ? What does a zombie look like? Act like? Sound like? Smell like?
Slide2Dramatic pause forwhat will (hopefully) be fabulous answers.
Slide3NO!You are all wrong!
Slide4A zombie looks, acts, sounds and smells just like an…
Slide5…8 th grader who has just finished 5 days of SAGE testing!
Slide6So, now that we’veestablished that Ms. Nielsen has an entire classroom full of zombies …
Slide7… let’s write poetry about ourselves! And other zombies !
Slide8FYI: Ms. Nielsen really is freaked out by the idea of zombies , and they are but it seems so appropriate for the occasion that we’re doing zombie poetry anyway.
Slide9Let’s write a haiku zombie poem! Oh you lucky, lucky, teenage zombies. You don’t get to do awesome stuff like this in science and math , now do you?
Slide10What is a haiku , you may ask?
Slide11A haiku is a dense little nugget of poetry with some very simple rules : it has to be three lines , and those lines have to be five syllables , seven syllables , and five syllables . That's it. http://www.zombierama.com/brainwaves/haikuform.html
Slide12That's it. Of course,there has to be some poetic merit. It can't just be 17 syllables chopped into three bits. But it can be about anything . So why not zombies ? http://www.zombierama.com/brain waves/haikuform.html
Slide13Here’s an example:Nothing more terrible than zombie adolescence . . . except Grandpa's breath. 3 lines of poetry: 5/7/5 syllables 5 syllables No/ thing/ more/ smell/ y/ 7 syllables than/ zom/ bie/ a/ do/ le/ scence 5 syllables ex/ cept/ Grand/ pa's/ breath.
Slide14Do you want to see some moreexamples of zombie haiku ? Of course you do! Most of the haiku on the next few slides are from www.zombierama.com but Ms. Nielsen did write one of them. Can you guess which one?
Slide15Zombie Bruce Springsteen was not "Born to Run"; no, he was born to eat brains. Crowding in the street The zombies shuffle their feet No one left to eat. Dismembered zombies Heads roll around on the floor. Soccer, anyone? Wading, the fish nip and nibble off my ankles. Oh, no! Zombie fish!
Slide16Playing fetch with Spotis dangerous when the bones he brings back still move. Zombies are no fun, When you see one you must run, Or shoot with your gun. Slick shiny jiggly and red, is it jello or a snack for undead? (written by Chris Crowe) The vegan zombie cares not for sweet grey matter they cry out for graaaaaaaaaaains!
Slide17Crowding in the streetThe zombies shuffle their feet No one left to eat After surgery Zombies cleanup and delight In take-out dinner. I hunger for your delicious cerebellum. Where's the ice cream scoop? Autumn's bold decay cannot stop the oncoming waves of undead flesh.
Slide18Now it’stime for you to write your own haiku . Now it’s time for you to write your own haiku . One final word: • Zombies are gross and disgusting, but please don’t may your haiku so disgusting that we’re crossing the line into violating school, state or federal laws or the rules of human decency. Thank you!
