Thanks to the Patton PTA, Bill Buczinksy, the poetry man, visited Patton on Tuesday April 28 for a full day of poetry rhythm, metaphor and images. Kindergarten - 2nd grade participated in a poetry performance in the Commons featuring, guitar, bongos, Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein and students too, with plenty of rhythm and song. 5th grade classes and two 3rd grade classes participated in poetry workshops in the LMC where students learned about what makes poetry different from prose, making lists of words for an image and turning those words around until a poetic image came through.
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
