Enrichments Update and Shout-out

Fall Enrichments are almost over. Coming Soon: Keep an eye on future Tidbits for an announcement regarding Spring semester virtual enrichments!


In poetry this week, we wrote “jigsaw puzzle” poems where we took the words from a poem and mixed them up to create new poems. We used “Snow Toward Evening” by Melville Cane. Caroline, kindergartner, wrote “White Snow” and two other poems. She now says she wants to be a poet when she grows up!
