On April 26th, students all over the world celebrated Poem in Your Pocket Day (PIYPD). During the month of April, my students heard poetry read aloud to them and wrote their own poems in the media center.
As a culmination to National Poetry Month, 3 of the classes at HES (two 2nd grade classes and one 5th grade class) video chatted to share their poems with other schools through Skype. The students had a fantastic time sharing their own original poetry with a larger audience! When I asked my students who had fun with the video chat, every hand was raised!
Students could pick a poem for their pocket for Poem in Your Pocket Day from our poetry display.
