Join the Shellibration!

For the second year we invited people to join us for a "Shellibration" to celebrate National Poetry Month. This year our celebration took place in April and we shared our favorite Shel Silverstein (and other favorite authors) poems as well as other activities to encourage an exploration of poetry.

An ongoing way we celebrate poetry is with our Poem-tree. Visitors to the Family Room can add a leaf with their favorite verses.

During Book Bunch we celebrated with flashlight poems. Using an idea from the Crayola web site, participants wrote poems and they were then displayed in the Family Room.

The direct link is here:

For the Shellibration we read our favorite Shel Silverstein (or other author's) poems.
Afterwards we created moveable poetry. Moveable poetry is like magnetic but we used construction paper and not magnets. The idea also came from Crayola and can be accessed here:

created with sight words for our moveable pieces.
