Abby's class had a poetry jam at school in March--they'd been working for a long time on writing poems and reading poems with actions and expression. The kids served the invited guests snacks and lemonade, then put on a little program. Some students introduced a types of poem, then we had time to write on butcher block paper that was on our table and time for some groups to share what they had written. Intermixed were poems performed by Abby's class that they had been practicing. It was such a fun event, and I'm glad I was able to take the afternoon off to be a part of it!
