4th Graders Celebrate Poetry with Their Parents and Teachers
By Ms. Castellano, P.S. 91X
On January, 19, 2017, the 4th Grade students invited their parents in for a Poetry Celebration, led by Ms. Castellano, Ms. Forrey, Ms. Montan, Ms. Prestigiacomo, Ms. Iacovelli, and Ms. De La Rosa. Students wrote a variety of poems, such as Acrostic Poems, List Poems, and Shape Poems. To evoke feelings in their writing, they used many poetry devices. The most popular devices were rhyme, repetition, similes, ellipses, different kinds of punctuation and big/bold words. Many students dedicated their poem to a family or faculty member who joined them for the celebration. Ms. Nasjletti, Ms. A-Rod and Ms. Gold were all in attendance, as well! What a special morning the 4th Grade had!
