We read poems in class. We study grammar and punctuation with poetry. Once a month, students will memorize and recite a poem. This year, you will get to know poetry and you will find some poems that mean a great deal to you.

Dates for poem recitals: The weeks of October 7, November 4, December 9, January 13, February 3, March 3, April 7, and May 5.


Click here to listen to Dr. Turner reading one of her favorite poems "Rhyme" by Robert Pinsky, or here for "If" by Rudyard Kipling, which is the first poem of the year.

Below is a Wordle of the words in "If."
