Arlo and the Orca

A collaborative poem written by all of Room 8. This poem expresses our feelings of anger looking though 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 an emotion we want to show or not

It starts when we get upset about something


This week Monique and Stacy came to class and presented Monique’s book. We learnt that it’s okay to cry and that life can be moody and stormy with waves of emotion BUT to remember the sun will always come back and shine.

Thank you Monique for writing the book and Stacy for presenting it to us
