“O! how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day!”–
We’ve been taking full advantage of this beautiful weather and taking our studies outside. We’ve used Theater Square Park to write with observational skill, and dive into Poetry.
Here’s some snippets of student work:Aluminum Fish if you were given the chance to leap from your post where the discarded soda cans dance would you take it? Thousands of small leaves crushed mercilessly underfoot without second thought Lamps stood sentry at the passages between hedges. A large grey and yellow building stood at one end of the park. Dragonflies flew busily around. The smell was like pine needles. Most time you couldn’t notice it, but in came in stabs occasionally. The architecture was strange here, going from extremely modern to mid-Victorian. It smelled like salt and oregano. Knox surveyed his surroundings, squinting from the sunlight and whispered into the palm of his hand, “It seems like a glorious day to be kidnapped, don’t you think Jo?”
We also enjoyed some reading of a “Midsummer Night’s Dream” in preparation for the upcoming play. True Shakespeare in the Park style!
