To celebrate National Poetry Month, students in Grades 3-5 spent the month of April reading and writing poetry. Students wrote a variety of poetry, some of which included acrostic poems, Haikus, Cinquains, and rhymes.
As a culminating activity and opportunity to practice public speaking skills, Third through Fifth Graders participated in the Second Annual Renaissance School Poetry Slam. Parents and friends were invited to the event. Each Third and Fourth Grade student shared at least one of their own poems which was read aloud to the audience. Fifth Graders shared two poems that they had to memorize. It was a wonderful experience for students to share their creative writing to the student and parent community!
