What’s a cinquain? Find out as you use the intense colors of Crayola® Model Magic to accent the number of syllables in each line of your original verse.
Read books of poetry. Notice the different ways that poets arrange the words and lines in their work. These are the rules for writing each line of a cinquain: <UL>Line 1 - Title (2 syllables)<BR>Line 2 - Describe (4 syllables)<BR>Line 3 - Action (6 syllables)<BR>Line 4 - Feeling or effect (8 syllables)<BR>Line 5 - Synonym for initial noun (2 syllables)</UL>For example: <UL>Parties <BR>Fun, food, games, friends <BR>Talk, laugh, and celebrate <BR>Share old memories, make new ones <BR>Good times</UL>
Write your own cinquain neatly with a Crayola Washable Fine Tip Marker. Leave three or four spaces between each line. To make an interesting border, trim around the edges with Crayola Scissors. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach the cinquain to a contrasting color of construction paper.
Show each syllable of your cinquain with a distinctive accent mark made with colored Crayola Model Magic. Make tiny icons that reflect the theme of your poem to mark each syllable—such as the party balloons shown here. Create your own signature colors by mixing two or three colors of Model Magic together. Try swirling colors together for more special effects. You could even color-code the syllables.
Allow your icons to dry. Use Crayola School Glue to glue them above each syllable of your cinquain. Air-dry the page flat. <P dir=ltr style="MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px">
Add decorative details with markers. Read your cinquain to appreciative audiences of families and other students. Display your beautiful cinquains in your classroom or school hallways.
