Poetry

Fifth-graders at Orchard Hills have been writing poems.  Here are some of the poems they wrote:

 

Adventure Day

By Gracie

Observing insects on a tree.

Winding paths to discover animals lurking in the bushes,

Leaves falling in our hair like snow everywhere,

The bright sun sparkles through the trees like glitter falling from the sky,

A stream trickles small and swift,

Exciting events around each corner like mysteries behind a book’s cover,

Pine trees smell like scented candles,

Second Grade Olympics

The second grade kicked the year off with the 2nd Grade Olympics! Each class set goals, made a class flag, and participated in events all week long. The students tie-dyed shirts in their classes and wore them at the Closing and Opening Ceremonies. Mr. Murray came and spoke to use about achieving our goals and working hard in all we do. We are excited for an awesome year!
