Second grade students at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District put on an outstanding poetic performance for family and friends on May 17. The Poetry Jam, performed by Stacy Tuohy’s students, showcased poems the students had written and memorized after studying the craft. As part of the study unit, they discovered how to turn ordinary words into extraordinary words and learned about the importance of pauses, alliteration, similes and rhyming.
