Next week is our annual Poem-in-Your-Pocket week. Today (April 26) is national Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day, and at Pennekamp we typically extend this event for a whole week to allow students to participate during their weekly class visit to the library. For our observance, students who have a poem in their pocket when their class visits the library can read their poem aloud and have their photo taken for this year's Pocket Poem poster. On display in the library this week are many poetry collections, from which students can copy a poem to pocket; or students can compose their own original poem to carry (a minimum of two lines, please). Some classes are working on acrostic poems right now--that form is fun and easy for anyone, even beginning poets.
