Pearl City 5th Graders Help 1st Graders with Acrostic Name Poem

Writing   Pearl City 5th Graders help first grade students with Acrostic Name Poem writing projectPearl City, Illinois – The first graders and fifth graders of Pearl City Elementary School got together for a special writing session recently.

Mrs. Visel’s fifth graders helped Mrs. Lorig and Mrs. Lawler by assisting their students in an acrostic name poem project.

Each first grader had to come up with descriptive words or phrases about themselves.  The fifth graders were there to help with prompting and spelling.

The cross-grade activity benefited both groups:

first graders received a little help with their assignment, and the older students got a taste of the responsibility of teaching someone else.

More writing awaits both groups of students in the near future.
