Our College Friends

On Tuesday, October 8, we had a group of very special helpers come in to visit with our class and Mrs. Towsen's class. Miss Conrad is one of the coaches of the Lebanon Valley College Women's Soccer team, and their team came to visit with us, help us with a writing project and read with us!

One of the tools that writers use to make their writing more interesting is descriptive words. Authors usually think of these words by using their 5 senses because almost everybody can make a connection to seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling or feeling things. So we started working on a poem about autumn that will use all five of our sense.

To add extra pizazz to our poems, the college girls helped us use some of the things we observed about autumn to make beautiful pictures to go with our poems. We'll be hanging the artwork and our finished poems in the hallway and stairwell for everybody in the school to enjoy. Take a look at the slideshow below to see all of our hard work.

Thank you to the LVC Women's Soccer team for coming to visit us and help our in our classrooms! We had so much fun, and we hope that you'll come back again some time.
