My Budding Poet

Tonight we attended the Second Grade Share Fair...a much anticipated event.The theme of the evening was "Poetry" We were delighted that our Princess had volunteered to read one of her original creations to an entire gym full of second graders and their extended families. Such a brave and talented girl!

After the program, we were sent to the classrooms so that our children could share their poetry books with us.

And of course, I knew immediately that I wanted to share my girl's work with you all. The books are rather cleverly made of brown paper bags, which allow for two pull-out pages. The last page is an author page. You'll be glad to know that my daughter credits her cat as being her inspiration and concludes her bio with, "She has goofy parents."

Princess's reading teacher is going to enter her poem "Willow" into a competition. We're just happy that she's so comfortable sharing her creativity with us all!

Once again, we feel very blessed to have had such wonderful teachers at our school. We couldn't ask for a better education.

And this year we have TWO special teachers who've guided our daughter through the year.

Thank you VERY much Mrs. Heath and Mrs. Nichols!

Like the Princess, my daughter started writing poetry in grade school and progressed from there. Loved reading her poetry - what a talented young lady!
