Butterfly and Poetry Garden Update November 21, 2008

Filed under: 2008-2009 School Year — gardenexplorer1 @ 5:16 am

First and fifth grade buddies in Mrs. Rothchild’s and Ms. Lim’s classes are taking a break from butterflies for a few weeks and are beginning to build a poetry garden. In the classroom, buddy pairs read poetry and picked out words they wanted to include in their poetry garden. Outside, buddies painted approximately 40 bricks white. The bricks will become a template for words. Buddy pairs will paint the words they have chosen on four sides of the bricks. Then the words will be lined up in the garden, available for arranging into poetic combinations by any child who chooses to create a poem.
