Ted Scheu Visits for National Poetry Month!

Ted Scheu,a local poet, visited Edmunds for a school wide assembly. 

 He shared poems from his many books with us.  

Ted showed us how poets play with language to create poems that surprise the reader.  We worked together to create our own poem about Spring:

Spring is.... (By: Us)

Bunnies dancing 
Flowers singing
sun smiling
rain crying
butterflies gliding
grass waving

Spring Rocks!

After the assembly, Ted worked with each second grade class to teach them how poets use similes (the language of comparison), to make their poems powerful. 

 Thanks to Kathy Neil, our librarian, for arranging this event!
