April wrapped up with one of my very favorite days of the year, Poem In My Pocket Day. I love walking around school that day sharing poems with students, as did several other staff members. By the end of the day the students were just inundated with poetry, and there is really nothing better.
I also created my very first Poetrees, with the help of Mr. Clough and Ms. Kniffin. These were a little scrawny, but I have bigger and better ideas for next year. We have planted the seeds of inspiration, and students and teachers have been continuing to add poems all this week!
We are all a little better off having a lot more poetry in our lives!
