Poem In Your Pocket Day is one of my favorite holidays of the entire year. It is right up there with World Read Aloud Day. Yesterday my students and I had a blast celebrating poetry.
The day started off with third graders passing out poems to every: parent, grandparent, teacher, and student that walked into our building.
They had a little bit of help from my kindergarten daughter.
I loved seeing the teachers at Parma sharing their poems before school with each other.
I think this picture shows just how cool Poem In Your Pocket Day can be.
We spent a few minutes in the morning reading our poems to each other.
I cannot imagine celebrating a book holiday without Mr. Schu.
We had a blast Skyping with his kindergarteners.
In the afternoon a second grade class stopped by. I love this picture of these brothers reading to each other.
I’m hoping this video captures the beautiful craziness that is Poem In Your Pocket Day.
I hope you had a most excellent Poem In Your Pocket Day.
