Celebrations: Parents, Poetry, and Pastries

There is nothing like poetry and yummy treats to bring out the smiles in children. Holli, one of the teachers I have had the honor of co-teaching with this year, organized a delightful party to celebrate the work of her student poets. Parents, grandparents, administrators, and teachers attended. It was very touching to observe these writers bust with pride and bask in the limelight.  One of my favorite moments was when the class divided into two groups and recited a poem for two voices as a poem for two groups of voices! They sounded like a choir in 2-part harmony.

A poem for 2 voices becomes a poem for 21 voices. Can you
hear the cameras snapping from the proud parents?
