Poetry Recitation

Well, I resurrected a word that has become rather archaic in modern times.

Recitation.

Monday morning, I hosted the Poetry Recitation Championship for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The students recited "If" by Rudyard Kipling from memory. The sixth graders won, requiring only a small prompt or two.

This is the first year that they have memorized poetry and this was the longest piece so far. They did a fantastic job and their reward was a Strawberry Cheesecake Blizzard Ice Cream Cake for lunch.

Hop over to Through the Ages to see a couple of pictures.
