Happy Poem In Your Pocket Day

I’m super excited to be celebrating Poem In Your Pocket Day today with my third graders.

Earlier this week my students poured over poetry anthologies looking for the perfect poem to carry in their pocket.

These dudes are looking for a great #pocketpoem.

This year my students are going to pass out poems to students/parents/teachers as they come in our building. We have over 500 poems to pass out. My students were excited to work on this project with the third grade classroom next door.

My son got excited yesterday when I was talking about Poem In Your Pocket Day. He decided to make up his own poem. He carried it around in his pocked on Poem In Your Pocket Day Eve.

This afternoon my students and I will be sharing our poems with our third grade neighbors, and with Mr. Schu’s students via Skype.

How will you be celebrating poem in your pocket day?
