Yesterday I went to the shelf and took down the poetry books from the 800's Dewey Decimal shelf and put them on the tables for students to find poems they liked.
Boys enjoyed Kwame Alexander's The Crossover. We learned about penguins with Irene Latham's
When the Sun Shines on Antartica. Students enjoyed learning through poetry on National Penguin Day.
It was Put a Poem in Your Pocket Day.
They asked for paper to write their own poems. At the public library they had a basket with poems cut out that students could pick out and put in their pocket.
They loved it!
Any day should be Put a Poem in Your Pocket Day!
