PYP Poetry Week| PYP詩歌周活動
Each grade level in PYP has been working hard this week to prepare poems in our first ever poetry week! It is our goal to increase comprehension and appreciation of the English language through different forms of expression.

There are many different styles of poetry that our students have the opportunity to learn and each grade?level has a specific style they are focusing on.

All grades also displayed beautiful “Poet Trees,” trees designed by teachers and placed outside of classrooms to hold the creative poems of our students. Each class had the opportunity to publish their work on our PYP Poetry Walk which is currently displayed on the sidewalk by the track.

Our students also hosted a poetry café in each PYP classroom where they took turns reading their poems to their parents while enjoying some tea and pastries.

為了讓孩子們感受語言的魅力,增加學習語言的興趣,PYP部門舉辦了詩歌周活動。各個班級表現得都非常活躍,也做出了最大的努力來完成。

通過這次活動,學校希望學生們能夠更好地理解和鑒賞英文詩。在詩歌周,老師針對不同年級的學生布置了不同主題的詩歌創作,包括藏頭詩、自由體詩、圖形詩還有俳句詩。每個年級還在教室外面布置了詩歌樹,詩歌樹上結滿了孩子們創作的果實。學生們在詩歌周活動中的所有作品也在走廊里一一展出。

學校還邀請了家長們來參加此次活動!在各個班級里孩子們朗誦自己創作的詩歌,大家都看見了孩子們的進步!下面是四年級Vee老師的原創詩歌!

“Today we can paint

Outside so beautifully

Long live Poetry”

-Miss Vee Class 4.1

Our first grade classes have been focusing on acrostic poems. An?acrostic poem?is a type of?poetry?where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase.

The most common and simple form of an?acrostic poem?is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.

This was a great opportunity for students expand their vocabulary express their feelings about different experiences and topics.

Daniel Grade 1 Class 2 “My favorite part of poetry week was learning to use the dictionary and painting my poem on the sidewalk. I hope others can enjoy my poem”

一年級學生的作業是藏頭詩。學生們先選好一個單詞,然后以這個單詞的每個組成字母為首,開始每一句的創作。

藏頭詩可以豐富孩子的詞匯量,一(2)班的Daniel說“詩歌周活動讓我學會了用字典查單詞,還可以在短詩旁邊畫上我喜歡的圖案。期待別人也喜歡我寫的詩!”

Our second grade team has been using prepositions to write poems. Prepositions are words used before nouns to form a phrase that modifies another word in the sentence (in, on, under).

These students wrote beautiful poems about their passions in life. James from class 2.3 expressed his love for golf in this beautiful poem!

二年級學生的作業是以介詞開頭創作詩歌。介詞用于名詞前,來表達事物的位置關系。學生們用介詞開頭的英文詩來表達生活中的所見所聞。二(3)班的James創作了一首有關高爾夫球的短詩。

“On the green, In the bunker, In the air, Up and Down, Hole in one”?– James

The third grade team is working on acrostic and shape poems. To write a shape poem, you must choose an object (animal, car, food) to be the subject for your poem.

Draw a simple outline of its shape on paper. Jenney from class 3.2 shares this awesome acrostic poem.

三年級學生的作業是創作圖形藏頭詩。首先要選定描述對象,然后畫出它的外形。下面是三(2)班Jenney的藏頭詩。

Cool Clouds

Loop-de-loop clouds

Oh no! No rain without clouds

Uh oh! No more rain

Don’t go away clouds

-Jenney

Our fourth grade classes studied several forms of poetry including acrostic, haiku and free verse poems.?Haiku?is a traditional form of Japanese?poetry.

Haiku poems?consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a?Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables.?They worked on using different parts of speech to increase the strength of their poems. ?These students also used acrostic poems to tie into their current unit on challenges, risks, and opportunities that children face worldwide.

Tree?is tall and good

Love tree, tree is beautiful

Who like a big tree?!

Class 4.2

四年級的學生們學習了藏頭詩、俳句詩和自由體詩。俳句詩是日本的古典短詩,由3句17音構成一首詩,首句5音,次句7音,尾句5音。學生們還通過藏頭詩來表達當今世界兒童所面臨的挑戰,風險和機遇。下面這首是來自四(2)班同學的杰作!

This week was meant to teach students about poetry and to give them an opportunity for creative expression. Students really enjoyed playing with the English language and the different styles of poetry. We hope to make this a regular spring event in PYP in the future.

通過這周的活動,學生們加深了對詩歌的理解并完成了自己的創作。學生們都非常喜歡這種學習英文的形式,對不同類型的詩歌也產生了濃厚的興趣。期待在以后的每個春天,PYP都會舉行詩歌會活動。
