Today (and tomorrow for 4th graders) we handed out fliers promoting a local poetry contest that we are encouraging all of our students to consider enter. This fits perfectly with what our students are learning right now. Our fourth and fifth graders have been reading and writing poetry as part of a unit in the Amplify language arts curriculum we are piloting this year. The quality and complexity of poetry is challenging as students are reading works from poets such as Langston Hughes, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and Emily Dickinson. Information about the contest can be found in the student flier or at the link below. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.
