Los estudiantes de primer grado en la escuela Hurley acaban de terminar un proyecto emocionante que combina la fotografía, la tecnología y las artes de lenguaje. Durante varias semanas, los estudiantes trabajaron juntos para tomarles retratos fotográficos representando distintas emociones.

Después, en su clase de artes de lenguaje, La senora Estepe y la senora Colón los guiaron en escribir poemas basados en sus fotos y las emociones representadas. Concluimos con una presentación de poesía en el salon. Los estudiantes compartieron sus poemas leyéndolos en voz alta para sus compañeros de la clase.

Aqui hay algunos de sus fotos y poemas. Esperamos compartir mas con ustedes durante el evento Abriendo Puertas el 10 de abril!

My Feeling by Mallory

Happy, sad
and so much more to pick.
Purple and orange
so much to pick.
A and B, too.
I just can't handle it.
I am mad.
I am frustrated.
I calm down.
I am happy.
I needed to take a nap.
I wake up.
I needed that.

Yo Estoy por Jeremy

Yo estoy feliz cuando juego con mis amigos.
Yo estoy enojado cuando mi mama grita.
Yo pienso cuando necesito hacer mi trabajo.
Yo estoy sorprendido cuando veo algo extraño.

Yo Estoy por Vrianna

Yo estoy triste porque me distes.
Me asustaste, así que me asuste.
Me sorprendi porque me distes una sorpresa.
Me siento orgullosa cuando paso un examen.

I am Me by Matilde

When I am happy I smile
When I am mad I cry
Because someone did something to me
When I am excited I laugh
Because I am happy.
