Writing Concrete Poems in Library Class! @resvt #vsla #vted




 One-word concrete poem: "Flying"
Can you see the "L" flying?


In collaboration with their classroom unit on poetry, RES second graders have been learning about and writing concrete poems in their library classes. Concrete poems, also known as shape poems, are poems where the arrangement of words or letters on the page add to the meaning of the poem.




Students shared several books of concrete poetry, then they wrote their own. We are so impressed with their creativity!

Matter Survival Challenge! #resvt

For our science unit on matter, students are learning about how materials are best suited for a job based on their properties. Students explored different types of clothing (rain jacket, sweater, shin guard, and a t-shirt) and had to record the properties and why someone might wear that clothing. The next day students experimented with paper towels, tin foil, paper bags, and paper plates and had to rate each in the categories of softest, absorbent, and stiff. All of these materials would be used for our survival challenge to make a sunhat. Check out the pictures of the survival hats that we created and tested today!

Do you enjoy spending time on the golf course?  Have you ever wondered what golf really is?  We need parent volunteers to make our day at Cedar Knoll Country Club both fun and successful.  You don't have to know anything about golf to help us out.  We need parents to chaperone groups as they take part in stations and parents to help supervise stations.  No worries, we will give you everything you need to run a station.
    Our trip is on Tuesday, June 6 with the rain date being on Thursday, June 8.

    Please email Marie Ayer at marie.ayer@cesuvt.org if you are able to help out on either of those days.
