Can anyone help me make a diamante poem about drums?
playing listening reading
That's all I have so far.
after that I have to put 2 nouns and 2 opposite nouns of the topic.. then opposite ing words... and then opposite adjectives about the topic(noun).
I don't know how "reading" fits in there.
What are you going to end up with? That is, what will be the final word in your poem? It needs to be an opposite of "Drums" in some way. Until you decide that, you'll have trouble figuring out the rest.
Reading notes to play
The last word should be ONE word.
Wait so first I have my noun which is the topic, and then I have to find 2 adjectives to modify the topic. The third line has to have 3 words ending in -ing.
For the next line, do I do three ing words that are the opposite of my topic? And for the fifth line do I do 3 ing words that are the opposite of my topic?
After that I do the last word and it should be opposite of the topic?
The fourth line needs to be made of two phrases -- one that is related to the top word and one that's related to the opposite (bottom) word. The example for antonyms (on the right in the linked webpage) shows two prepositional phrases.
The rest of what you said you need is correct.
How come it says on Google some of them say to do four nouns or a short phrase on line 4 and not to do two opposite words? Then it says to just put another 3 ing words on the 5th and another 2 adjectives on the fifth?Then it says for the ending word to just repeat your topic and not to do the opposite of your topic..
Sorry I get confused on that part of the poem..
What were your teacher's directions? To write a diamante of synonyms (1st and last nouns mean similar things)? Or to write a diamante of antonyms (1st and last nouns mean opposites)?
When I assigned these, I had students do antonym diamantes, not synonym, but you must do what your teacher assigned.
If you have your choice, do an antonym diamante.
Follow the directions for the antonym diamante on that website. You'll have 7 lines:
1 - a noun
2 - 2 adjectives describing that noun
3 - 3 participles (-ing words) describing that noun
4 - 2 prepositional phrases = the first one describes the noun in line 1, the second describes the noun you will put in line 7
5 - 3 participles describing the noun in line 7
6 - 2 adjectives describing the noun in line 7
7 - a noun (an antonym for the noun in line 1)
You're welcome. Let us know how it turns out!! =)
