April is National Poetry Month! The focus of our reader’s and writer’s workshop lessons has been poetry. The students have thoroughly enjoyed reading different types of poetry from various authors. They are also writing some poetry of their own, learning that often times, poets look at ordinary objects in extraordinary ways. We have published a poem and will share it with you at our end of the year celebration.
We also celebrated “Poem In Your Pocket” day. Each student selected a poem that was special to them. They had the opportunity to share this poem with adults, other students and a 3rd grade class.
