Poetry Slam!

Second graders participated in the 14th annual POETRY SLAM held at Champlain College.

 Students each chose a poem, memorized it, and  then practiced  and using their voice and gestures to perform it.

 Many students Slammed original works.  Edmunds families and friends came to hear their poems.

 Ted Scheu, a local poet, who had worked with both classes, attended the Slam.

 in addition, we welcomed back former slammers as announcers and judges for the slam.  It was a lively and fun event.

5th Grade Celebration Slideshow!

Here is the 5th grade slideshow that was intended for this morning's assembly.
Feel free to share with your families!

Kamishibai Theater

Students in Mrs. Weidman's and Ms. McMorris' classes were treated to a Kamishibai Theater presentation at the middle school during their community service day recently. Kamishibai Theater is a type of Japanese storytelling that was popular in the early 1900's. 

 Cards with the story script on the back and illustrations on the front are slipped from the wooden theater as the story is told.

 Everyone had a wonderful time listening to the Japanese folklore stories. After the presentation, our students were gifted with treat bags prepared by the EMS students.

Design Project with EMS and Second Grade

Second graders in Ms. McMorris's class collaborated on a design challenge with middle school students in Mr. Truchon's class.

 Students were given a scenario of a turtle that was stranded in a neighborhood and had to get back to its habitat in the wetlands which was on the other side of a highway. 

Teams were given a bag of items to create something that would attach to a zip line and safely transport the turtle over the highway.
