Poetry in the Wild

poetry5Students and poetry took flight outside the classroom on Poem in your Pocket Day, April 24th. Armed with sidewalk chalk, students wrote passages from a number of well-known poets which included work by Robert Frost, Sara Teasdale, Shel Silverstein, Emily Dickinson, Pablo Neruda and e.e.cummings. Afterwards, students went “shopping” for five favorite lines from other poems, then worked in groups to create a new cento poem. Enjoy some of the
new creations.
