The Grade 2 EAL children have learned that writing poetry is a way to express emotions and feelings, using their 5 senses. The children tried to express these feelings and emotions by using descriptive words. (adjectives)
Observations in the IST garden, oral feedback about their thoughts and writing several drafts were part of the process. The final project was made from a painting that was scanned on the computer. Students used a program called Doozla to add their words to the paintings.
These posters are also up on the wall next to the staffroom.
Enjoy reading their poems about our IST garden!
