Author, David Greenberg came to Edy Ridge on Friday for two assemblies. His playful, irreverent style of poetry is coupled with wonderful illustrations that make the kids laugh. Boy, did they! He shared his books about Slugs!
, and some playful etiquette books that are a little backwards. Both assemblies were high-energy, and are a great kick-off to David's Artist in Residence that will begin later this fall. He will spend two sessions in each classroom, helping kids write their own poems. The finale will be on Wednesday, December 5, when he comes for our Family Poetry Night. Many kids will share their poems and parents will be invited to write some of their own!
