Ted Shy That Poetry Guy

By Justin Cohen, Staff Reporter

This Wednesday Ted Scheu (aka Ted Shy that poetry guy) came to our school. In the morning he talked to the first graders and kindergartener’s. He read poems he made and told the back stories to the poems. They also made their own poems by listing whats in spring example:

Spring Is…

Rain                 Dancing

Chickadees      Soaring

Later in the afternoon Ted went to the first grade classrooms. He taught the first graders what a simile is. After that Ted showed them posters he made.  There was a circus one, Ipad, and bunny coming out of a hat, and this year’s was an eye. These posters were colorful and told a lot about him as a writer. Ted gave the kids a poetry licenses.  It was a wonderful learning experience.
