Ted Scheu the Poetry Guy!

Ted Scheu the Poetry Guy returned to Central School for a three-day residency, thanks to the CLiF Year of the Book grant!  Ted spent January 11-13 at CES, and he hosted an evening event on Wednesday, January 13th, for students and their families.  Students in kindergarten, first, and second grades worked with Ted on poetry writing, and then students were able to share their writing in front of the audience on Wednesday evening.  As always, Ted brought his sense of humor, fabulous teaching skills, and love of language to the task at hand, and CES students and teachers were the beneficiaries of his warmth and skill.
