School Poetry Wiki

I've been working all April on gathering poetry from around the school where I am a Library Media Specialist. (Click the image above for a direct link). I've pulled projects and examples of student work from each grade and used a wide variety of apps and tools to showcase what the kids are doing. It's been a lot of fun and I am really proud of their range of work. Take a look at pre-k poetry, kindergarten's creative response to Christina Rossetti poems, first grade haiku, second grade wordle words clouds of poems, and original poems from students in the older grades. There are also a couple short animoto videos of authors George Ella Lyon and John Steven Gurney, our visiting authors over the last two years. If you have a (free) wikispaces account you can leave a comment on the discussion pages. My students would love to hear your positive, encouraging feedback!

Friday Poetry round up is hosted at Family Bookshelf today. Love your Mother & enjoy a great weekend of poetry and springtime!

Thank you for posting such sweet words--and the video--about my visit.

I love your blog! Poems, prose, and photos. So alive!

It's finally quit raining in Kentucky and I have just hung out the wash. Always glad to bypass the dryer in the basement and look up at the sky.
