Open Mic Day!

openmic5thOur fifth graders enthusiastically enJOYed a great experience this morning…open mic day.  As they rotated through various classes, their stop in Mrs. Bly’s room honored their creative, dramatic, and productive side.  Students composed and performed original poetic selections individually or in small groups.  The coffee house atmosphere and leisure ambiance provided a soothing setting for sharing in a risk-free learning environment.  Learners received positive praise and accolades for clever personal selections while sipping on cocoa and “chillin’ to the vibe” (as one learner shared).  The whole idea was to celebrate National Poetry Month in unique fashion and the theme was “keep calm and get your poetry on…”  We are truly blessed with creative, sensitive, and thoughtful writers (as well as performers!).  Great job, 5th grade!  🙂
