Say What!?

This week students twisted their tongues as we talked about alliteration. They had to write their own tongue twisters that started with their name.

Each week there will be 3 poems from each class published to our Hands on Stanzas blog, and every student will have an opportunity to see their written work published on our blog in the weeks to come.
Scroll down to enjoy this week’s published poems!
