Third Graders Visit Drake's Terrace
The third grade is participating in a program called LITA’s (Love is the Answer) Bridging Generations. The goal of Bridging Generations is to establish meaningful connections between elementary school students and senior home residents.
The program began with some informal conversation, with written questions available as prompts, if needed. Next, the students practiced their newly honed skill at composing acrostic poems by writing new poems using the names of the senior buddies. The students were tremendously productive, writing and decorating poems for every Drake’s Terrace resident who joined in the program. To conclude, the children recited their poems for the whole room.
