3rd Graders Celebrate with a Poetry Cafe
On December 19th, our third graders held a Poetry Café Celebration for their writing unit. In our poetry unit, students were able to explore with using the physical space on the page, the sound of words, and the visual imagery used through poetry.
This genre allowed students to observe the environment around them and have the freedom to use observations, thoughts, experiences and feelings to write their poems.
Our media center was transformed into a café with dim lights, candles and small tables.
Parents and students were able to enjoy hot cocoa and cookies while they listened to the students share their poems.
Thank you for all who came out to support the students and their hard work in our poetry unit.
