Poem in Your Pocket Day
is Thursday, April 30!Each year on Poem in Your Pocket Day, schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and other venues ring loud with open readings of poems from pockets. We will be as well! Each child has written, chosen, and/or memorized a poem.
Every person in the school - students, teachers, staff, and other individuals - will carry a poem (or two or three)
Fifth grade students will be handing out poems to parents before and after school
The principal will begin the day by reading a poem over the intercom system
There will be poetry moments during the school day where everything stops and students share poems with one another.
Here are some other ways we have celebrated in the past:
