Second graders at Falcon Heights Elementary School in Minnesota made hanging pockets out of cast-off jean pockets. They filled them with poems and delivered them throughout the school. Recipients were invited to fill them with favorite poems of their own and send them back to the students.
We started today by writing a poem inspired by “Spring” using our senses-
Spring is in the air
-by Jackie, 9 and Joey, 8
