The grade 4 students from CA joined us at DESK for a collaborative poetry session.
The students warmed up with some icebreaker activities, then in small groups, created poetry about a common interest or passion.
The grade 3/4 class had such a great time! We can’t wait to work with Ms. Premchand and her class again!
Mia “I think this time it was really good! I really liked to make friends a lot. But some people were a little bit hard to be friends but I think that it was okay because I made some friends and I was also happy because I saw my friends that went to CA too! I really hope if I could see them again and play with them.
I am really sad that next year I can not make the poems with the CA students. “
Dhruvah “We did this poem activity with the CA students.It was the 4th graders.Me and my group did acrostic poem.Our topic was chocolate.After we finished our poem we did a presentation. The thing that was easy was we did not chose such a hard poem. And there was not much things so hard. We met with CA because we had to communicate with them.”
Jacob “The CA students from 4P & 4F came to our school to cooperate and make a poem together. I was in a group with Takanori, Leo, and Anhong. We did 2 poems. One about Games and the other about MineCraft. I think this activity was important to everyone because we can share ideas with other school and also we can cooperate too. I think this was very fun. I also met my other old friends from CA so I had a very fun time with them in a very old time.“
Sanu “In this class we made some poem with the CA students. At the beginning I was nervous to talk with the CA students because I did not know them. But after a few minutes I got comfortable talking with them So in the end it was very fun.
My group did a I am poem about a basket ball.”7
Kohrin “This is today. GES and CA worked together to do poem. The 4rth grader came and they came from 4p and 4f class.
It was good to do because when we were doing practice in the class it was kind of boring but if we collaborate with CA it was very very fun!
Our topic was MUSIC and we did acrostic.
I am very sad like same as Mia and i had 3 people I know and one of people it is my friend but the other 2 people I do not really speak to them.”
Mina “This is when we did poetry with CA students.I enjoyed doing this activity because,I could make other friends, communicate,cooperate and help each other.I wish I could do this activity again.”
Momoe “It was fun because I made lot’s of friend and there was my friend called Ami so, I was very happy to meet her again! We made a cinquain of Friendship. It was sooooooooooooooo fun!
It was a little bit hard to decide what to do because every ones thing was not same. But we came up with a great idea about (FRIENDSHIP)“
Ryusei “We combined with CA students, class 4p &4f to make the poems with them.This time,they came to our scool to make the awsome poems. I made new friend by this activity and made the poem with them. Our topic was soccer and we did acrostic. It was very fun time to spend with them and making the poems. I enjoyed so much and I think others did too! I was happy to meet my friend at CA who was in our school. I am sad that I am not going to make poem with them again. I wish I can meet the class from CA again and have fun plaing activity or of cours, making the poem with them again!!!“
Shuto “We did this new activity and this activity was interesting because this activity with CA student and this activity like rule was communication and cooperation and last was friend ship. My group was little silly because of not really thinking and Idea was not good and first it was challenging because this was so shy so I was challenging and I can’t talk because it was shy so I cant talk so that was the reason. “
David “This is when the CA students came to do poetry with us. We were in groups to make poems. Then, we decided on a topic.”
