Bookworms (2nd and 3rd graders) read poetry by Jack Prelutsky this month. They each marked a few (or a lot!) of their favorites to share during the monthly meeting yesterday. They read some and sang some after learning that many of Prelutsky's poems can be sung to the tune of the Girl Scout song or 99 Bottles of Pop on the Wall. We briefly discussed haiku, shape poems, and acrostic poems and then wrote our own poetry.
