National Poetry Month
Once again, we will celebrate all things poetry with several events in The Unquiet Library:
- A poetry reading and subsequent slidecast featuring the original poetry of Ms. Nayman’s 11th grade students
- The poetry clothesline featuring student poems and student favorites
- The Poem in a Pocket promotion
- Book displays featuring student and teacher favorite collections of poetry
- Door prizes and some surprise special events for Poem in Your Pocket day on April 29! Stay tuned for more news on this after spring break!
Check out Poets.org’s page on ideas for more ways you can celebrate National Poetry Month!
On Wednesday, April 29, Mrs. Nayman’s 2nd period 11th American Literature/Composition students shared poems inspired by personal photographs @ The Unquiet Library! You can enjoy the slidecast below to see their photos and hear each student read his/her poem. Simply click the green button, and the slides will automatically play and advance themselves.
Poem in Your Pocket Day 2009 is almost here! What is Poem in Your Pocket Day?
The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends on April 30, 2009. Poems from pockets will be unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores.
We will be celebrating in The Unquiet Library with poetry readings and free poems for everyone! Today we hung the first clothesline of poetry—check out the slideshow above. More clotheslines full of poems for your pockets are coming next week—stay tuned! Many thanks to Mr. Jason Hubbard for helping me hang the clothesline since I am vertically challenged!
Many thanks to Kenyon College for the idea and for letting me borrow it!
