Dwight School Libraries
Trimester 3 Updates
April is National Poetry Month!
- Students and faculty in grades 1-8 carried poems in their pockets to share with friends and family.
- Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh graders participated in a poetry slam and had the chance to create book spine and blackout poetry.
- High school students visited Timothy House classrooms to share poems with younger students. One high school participant reflected:
"This was a great experience for me to be able to read a poetry piece to different grade levels. I could see how happy and interested I was making them, with such simple words. Personally I love poetry myself so I saw it as an opportunity to share my own passion with a bunch of children from my own community at Dwight."
Fifth Grade creates library board games!
Students in Fifth Grade have been studying the research process: how to find reliable and useful resources, how to access information from those resources, and how to organize their newly-found information. They created board games, using the five essential elements of games, as a method to better understand the research process.
