Riverview students play it cool with poetry cafe
Second grade students at Riverview Elementary School spent an afternoon displaying verbal art when they hosted the Poetry Cafe Feb. 23. The students learned about poetry in their classroom, and even wrote a couple of poems to perform -- one about themselves, and one as a group poem. Students took turns at the microphone in a classroom made up to resemble a cafe. Between each student's reading, classmates responded with a few finger snaps and "Cool, cool, cool." And so it was.
