Poets in Third Grade!


Third grade has begun the poetry unit of Jacob’s Ladder- and they’re LOVING it so far! Many students have taken my suggestion of trying a poetry book for reading at home or in class, and Shel Silverstein and Bruce Lansky are two of the favorite authors. We’ve discussed personification, similes and other types of figurative language. Keep your eye out for original poetry written by your own third grade poet! 

This Friday we are going to watch the play Charlotte’s Web at the Matthews Playhouse. We depart the school at 9 and will return before lunch. 

If your child has elected to run for student council, forms are due on Friday, October 14th. 

Reminder- tomorrow is a noon dismissal and Wednesday there is no school for Yom Kippur.

Have a great week!
