[PHOTOS] Kumpf Students Set Goals, Learn Iambic Pentameter


CLARK – All students in Miss Faro’s mathematics classes at the Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark created goals for themselves at the beginning of the year. Students could select any goal relating to math, including having a better understanding of certain concept, receiving a certain grade for the marking period, or making honor roll. During this past week, students received their goals back and were able to self reflect on their accomplishments and progress. Even though not all students achieved their ultimate goal, many of them noticed much progress and are closer to achieving them for the coming year. In the photo above, Lauren Sasala, Robert Prussack and Jenna David present their goals.

The students in Mr. Taillefer and Ms. Bartolomeo’s Language Arts class are learning about iambic pentameter. First, the class at the Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark was given “Mending Wall”, a poem by Robert Frost, and asked to discuss the meaning. Then the children used Frost’s poem as a guideline to write their own poems in iambic pentameter. After each student completed their poem, an impromptu salon was held where they performed a dramatic reading of their poems in front of the class wearing a trendy scarf in the bohemian style. The class snapped their fingers in appreciation as opposed to clapping in order to keep with the poetic nature of the event. (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
