Singing the Blues
with the Chicago Poetry Center!
With the dark, chilly days of winter upon us, it’s only natural to feel a little blue. During a recent lesson at Avondale-Logandale Elementary, Poet in Residence Leslie Reese introduced Blues poetry to 5th graders with a fun activity. After delighting students with a performance by Pretty Bones Jefferson (Leslie’s Blues alter ego), she gave them a “Blues name generator” to help them discover their own Blues names.
