Where I’m from

For our poetry festival at Heathcote School, our teacher assigned a poem that we had to write. It is called the where I’m from poem. It is all about your life and what you have. We got a packet for us to look at and read where I’m from poems and do an outline of your poem. I read a lot of these poems and they inspired me on what I should write about in my poem. I followed the outline and added a few extra things. Finally I had my whole poem typed up on the computer. After a meeting with my teacher and some more edits, my poem was ready to be printed. After I printed it I drew a little design and some of the things that I mentioned as my illustration.


Once I had my poem it was time to practice for when I was going to recite it in front of the green screen. When I first started practicing my script I stumbled a lot. Every time I practiced I got better. Soon I had my script down pretty well and was ready to do my green screen video. First, I had to pick a picture for my green screen. I picked a design but when I went back to looking for a better picture I decided that the picture of a spotlight was better. I then went to the green screen and took my video. It took two tries for me to get it perfect because the first one I stumbled a little, but the second one was good.

Here is the video:

  1. I like how how you walked me through the steps of the process. It was very easy to understand. I also like how you talked about your fails as well as your success. Good job!
