ICS honors National Poetry Month

Gabriel Scott, Paige Reineck, and Marcella Brenner take a quiz on the use of similes as part of a grammar lesson.

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April; Schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. This month Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton celebrates poetry as well. 

The students in Mrs. Jacki Brown’s fourth grade have been learning about and writing poetry. Understanding figurative language is vital to understanding the meaning behind poetry. On Wednesday, the ICS fourth graders participated in a web lesson on classroom Chrome books that centered on similes as a way of expression in poetry. The class learned what makes up a simile and how it can be used as an expression of comparison between two sometimes very unalike things. They used an on-line learning site that gave the class examples and in the end quizzed them on what they had learned. 

Immaculate Conception School is now accepting registrations for the 2014-2015 school year. Call the school at 419.734.3315 for more information.
