Country Report in Glogster

Dear Parents and Students, Glogster is trying to correct problems with the uploads. Hopefully the problem will be resolved so that I can display your great work. Until then, enjoy the sun and a good book. I am going to be reading a couple – Hunger Games book 2, and Once On this River.

Robert Frost Leads the Way, Even Today, in 2012

Today was a special day like all days, children writing, sharing simple poetry, determining meaning, and imitating the beauty of the craft of people like Robert Frost. After sharing with the students, “Dust of Snow” the students then wrote their versions of Frost imitating his style and message.

For those of you that are not familiar with this poem it goes,
Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
~ Robert Frost

All students wrote their version with many supreme and here is one to catch your breath and make you realize the beauty of third graders.
