Yesterday we celebrated out first Poem in Your Pocket Day and what a celebration it was! Students were reading poems on the playground, in the office, in classrooms, in the library, in hallways….poetry fever was contagious!
The idea was simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month (or write your own) – then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends.
Poems from pockets were unfolded throughout the day and shared. This is a fun, national activity that has been done annually since 2002.
Here at Riverside we even had all of the 4th grade classes sharing poems with students in Ohio through Skype!
