Golden Empire students light up literacy at Poetry Jam

e-Connections Post

Forty-three intermediate students showed they have the gift of rhyme by participating in Golden Empire’s Fourth Annual Poetry Jam last month.

Coordinated by fourth grade teacher Robert Snider, the intermediate classes were treated to a variety of recitations, from such classics as Robert Frost’s “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” to the humorous “The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven.”

The students recited their memorized poem in an informal “jam” session that proved to be entertaining, thought-provoking and a lot of fun. There were even some poems recited by Golden Empire’s very own teachers! What a great way to learn about and appreciate poetry!
