Level 2 Poetry

The term has started with lots of exciting things happening in the Level 2 area. We are starting the new Unit of Inquiry- ‘How We Express Ourselves,’ with a focus on writing and presenting poetry.

The students are starting to experiment with rhyming couplets in their poetry. Elana and Caitlin wrote this poem:

I had a kid,

Whose name was Sid.

Sid had a squid,

Whose name was Paper Grid.


Celeste and Olivya wrote this poem:

At the beach, there were squid,

And the squid hid.

Sometimes I saw this kid,

And his name was Sid.


Please ask your child about their poetry. They are working very hard on writing it and are very keen to share their wonderful work.
