Unit I Shares Winter Poetry Presentation

The works of poets like Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky echoed throughout Faran Hall when Unit I gave their Winter Poetry Presentation in early February. The presentation was the second of three poetry recitations by the first-graders this school year.In addition to teaching the principles of poetry, Unit I teacher Amy Kulhavik said the lesson hones students’ memorization and public speaking skills. When they present, they must do so with clarity, loudness, and expression. “This unit is a favorite of not only the students, but teachers and parents, too,” Kulhavik said. “We are in awe of how confident and comfortable the students become by each presentation. By the third recitation, the students are pros, choosing and performing a poem independently.”
