Kindergarten Final Party

We received our published books in Kindergarten today and held a final “Coffeeshop Party.” We ate sprinkle-y cookies (because poetry is full of color and detail and surprise!) and did a reading, including snapping or clapping for one another. We also played a few poetry games, including running around the classroom to make similes and metaphors. It has been such a special year with these smart and kind kids and I’m going to miss them so much!



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
