Last week, second grade poets found inspiration and practiced seeing the world through “poet’s glasses” at the Renwick Gallery. While at the museum, students searched for details in works of art that others may miss. After observing a piece, small groups worked together to brainstorm verbs, adjectives and emotions that they later combined to create shared poems. Through interactive discussions, our guides also helped students learn how the artist’s choice of materials helps to convey their message. After returning to school, students continued to experiment with line breaks to refine these poems, prior to displaying them on the bulletin board outside the second grade classrooms. Please come see what we’ve created!
