Poetry Cafe

ImageYou’ve seen it before -it’s been on many a blog and pinterest board, and probably started with Beth Newingham (google her, right now, if you aren’t familiar!).  But this was my first foray into the world of the Poetry Cafe.  And let me say, I didn’t realize what I’ve been missing!  We set the mood with lots of black, faux candles, a mic and a spotlight.  Each student (either solo or in pairs) recited a poem, complete with expression and movement.  And they all wore black shirts, jeans and a colorful beret (Oriental Trading!) 

What a way to end the year (well, technically there are four more school days but…..)!Image
