For National Poetry Month we have been going a little Poetry Crazy in the library! In addition to daily poems in the announcements, poetry bulletin boards and posters and a Poetry Cafe where over 40 students read poems aloud at lunch, we wrote poems…. A LOT! The kindergarten students wrote shared and Furry Inspiration poems, the first graders wrote Favorite Things and dinosaur poems, the second graders wrote silly “What’s in the Bag” poems, the 3rd and 4th graders created I Am and Origami poems, and the 5th graders made black out and book spine poems.
A highlight of the month was connecting with the Bobcat Library at Benfer Elementary. They have been writing Paper Bag poems this month and we both decided to write just a couple more to end Poetry Month. You can read the poems they dedicated to us on the Bobcat Library Blog. Here are our poems dedicated to the Bobcats in Texas! They are written in Acrostic Style, which is a poem written vertically and horizontally. We hope you have had a fun poetry month!
