Poetry Slams and Photo Stories

Today fourth grade has been in the media center for the first half of the day. This morning they held a poetry slam where students read poems that they selected, poems they wrote, and poems that they added to. Many students memorized their poems and practiced public speaking and performing. Here’s a 27 minute video of their performances.

Later, Mrs. Cole’s class came and created short photo stories using self-drawn illustrations. Students read poems that they selected or poems that they wrote on their photo stories. Here are some examples:
