Third grade students held a Poetry Café Tuesday night.
The teachers transformed their classrooms into cozy cafés with tablecloths, candles and twinkling lights hung up. The students and their parents were treated to hot chocolate and other treats such as cookies, brownies and cheese and crackers while they listened to the children read their own poetry from handmade poetry books.
Over the past month, the students have been reading and writing various types of poetry. They have also been learning about the elements of poetry.
Students created individual books with the poems that they wrote. The Poetry Café allowed students to share their poems with their parents, as the students each read aloud selections of the poetry that they had written.
Wonderful work third grade students and teachers! You put in a lot of hard work learning about and writing poetry, you we think you did a great job!
