Getting lucky in Kentucky with our first school visit of 2015.
|Anchorage kindergartners BEFORE poetry.|
Sara and I drove down to Louisville at the invite of Mellisa Sangster to work with the K-8 building of students at the Anchorage schools.
As Sara said – it was nice to blow away the cobwebs at what is obviously a writing school. No worksheets for these students that we could see.
And we worked with just about all grade levels from K to 8. We wrote refrain poems about the playground and birds with some enthusiastic kindergartners, point of view pieces with third graders, personification with 7th and extended metaphor with eighth.
I like when we get to meet a swath of grades on a visit.
Then at the end of the second day we had a PD session with all the teachers.
A perfect way to get back into the swing of things!
