Ted Scheu (pronounced shy), the poet guy, brings rhymes to Colonial

COLONIAL SCHOOL — Ted Scheu visited Colonial April 25 to teach all the Colonial students how to cook up a good poem.

Robert Bischof (5H) said, “I think that Ted Scheu was funny and a good egg. He was funny and he really liked to talk about his mom. My favorite poem was ‘Can You Imagine.’ I loved his expressions, and the teachers probably had memories brought back to them. A lot of kids and teachers laughed their heads off.”

Lauren Varino (3K) said, “‘The Backwards Alphabet’ poem was one of my favorites.”

“He made me laugh in some of the poems,” said Annie Perreten (1A).

“I like that Ted Scheu gave a poetry book and CD to every class,” said Mrs. Virginia Manganiello.
