Yavneh Academy Presents Fifth Grade Poetry Slam

Yavneh Academy’s Fifth Grade Poetry Slam was an opportunity for children to both portray learning and to support each other. The event is the culmination of the fifth grade poetry unit in which they learned about various poetry forms under the guidance of their teachers, Ms. Alyse Malc, Mrs. Karen Tannenholtz, Mr. Jason David, Mrs. Tobi Abrahamson and associate teacher, Mrs. Fran Friedman. The students wrote original poems and collated them into a booklet. In advance of the Poetry Slam, 12 finalists were selected: Chani Herman, Ezra Silfen, Nava Lacher, Atara Ahdoot, Josh Wanatick, Nadiv Langer, Eliyahu Najman, Jude Shankman, Paige Schwartz, Avraham Hollander, Yael Lemonik, Rebecca Mantell.

Wearing red poet’s berets, the finalists recited their poems to an audience of their classmates and the three judges: Mrs. Rebecca Gordon, Mrs. Barbara Rubin and Mrs. Minna Heilpern.
