Yesterday, I posted about our annual Poem In Your Pocket Day Cafe. Today, 13 more classes came to share poetry into our open microphone. It was a non-stop day filled with wonderful words. As usual, there were many special moments like a student sharing a poem in Chinese and having his class give him the biggest round of snaps I’ve ever heard. Listen to their poetry sessions at the links below.
We loved having special guests join us online today:
Jovette Francoeur, educational consultant in Montreal, Quebec.
Grandparents in Goshen, CT
Mary Morgan Ryan, librarian in Illinois
Grandparents from Illinois
Kevin & Diane Fuchs, uncle & aunt from Indiana
Grandparents in Florida
Friends in Boston
Mrs. Hinger, librarian at Clarke Middle School in Athens
And so many more.
Each year, this day holds many special memories for it. Each year we add something new. I would love to hear your ideas for how this event could grow and change next year.
