Poet Visits Fourth Grade Students

Thanks to the Parent Association’s Creative Arts and Sciences Program, Andrew Green returned to our fourth grade again this year as our poet-in-residence. Fourth Grade General Studies Teacher Evie Weinstein-Park shared,”Following an interactive poetry reading of his own poems and those of some other published poets, Mr. Green taught each of the fourth grade classes for a one hour writing workshop, where he focused on word choice and how to create vivid imagery and use our imaginations. He also gave us some revising strategies. Everyone reconvened at the end of the day, when our students proudly shared the poems they had written (and which were quite impressive).”
