First Grade Poetry

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.
