For the last two years or so, one of our 4th grade teachers has worked with our students to create a Poetry Slam. He works with them during recess and gets them prepared for two rounds: preliminary and finals (Top Ten). Today was the third “somewhat annual” Poetry Slam at Ashley Elementary and the kids were fantastic. Our Slam included 20 students from 4th and 5th grades. You can listen to the preliminary round by clicking here.
