This month is National Poetry Month! To celebrate, the kids will be reading and writing poetry all month. To get things started, our first graders are learning about and creating acrostics like the examples you see here.

Second graders are illustrating and recording poems using a website called Third graders will create and illustrate acrostics using Powerpoint. Some students will be recording poetry along with music using Garageband. Fifth graders will be publishing some of their poetry on their blogs. Many students are writing original poetry – including our kindergarteners. We’ll be wrapping up the month with Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 26. If you’ll be at Crocker that day, don’t forget your poem! Stay tuned for original Crocker Cougar poetry and lots, lots more.
