Dear Parents of Grade 2 students:
Our school has been invited to send 2 students to participate in a Poetry Competition on January 25, 2013 at our school.
Grade 2 students are asked to memorize a 12 line (or longer) poem of their choice to recite with gestures and good expression, on January 11,
2013 in our classroom.
This will be included as part of their Memory Work mark. On this day, 2 selections will be made from
our class to participate.
Going on-line can be an easy way to find a poem. Searching under “children’s poems” should give you a good selection.
When reciting, each child needs to recite the title and author and then begin. Also a copy of the poem needs to be handed in on that day (11th).
Feel free to call or write a note in your child’s agenda with any questions.
