Students enrolled in Lauren Merdinger’s fourth-grade class at John Pearl Elementary School recently channeled their inner poet and crafted beautiful pieces of writing which were recited to their fellow classmates and invited guests in the school’s library.

Examples of genres explored during the presentation included “I Am…,” limerick, Haiku, silly poems, Cinquain and feelings. Additionally, after delivering their individual poems, the students came together and recited an impressive choral poem entirely by memory.
