Poetry on a Poe’Tree

All of the English Class pupils were encouraged to write poems to hang on the “Poe’ Tree” this month. Some class have written poems but they have not yet hung them on the tree yet.  It is always necessary for teachers to help pupils understand the difference between prose and poetry. The many elements and types of poetry are other areas that need to be explored from one year to another.

English Class second graders are shown in the collages above hanging their poems on the tree. As our pupils pass the tree on their way to class or on their way out, they have an opportunity to read what other English Class pupils have written. It is gratifying to hear the pupils praising many of the poems that they read!
