As April is National Poetry Month, Ms. Lowell's first grade students have been busy writing and reading their poetry. They learned that poets look at things very closely, and in a new and different way. They experimented with a variety of poetry styles including: List Poems, Repeating Word Poems, Sound Poems, Comparison Poems, Acrostic Poems, and Shape Poems. Each class celebrated this study with a Poetry Share.
Meanwhile, Ms. Ebeling's first graders were also excited to recite their poems at their poetry celebration. Each student selected a favorite poem they wrote to "fix up," and parents were invited to their poetry share.
