last night we had open house at our school. typically open house is a time when teachers display all of the creative/excellent projects students have completed throughout the semester. in honor of open house & in honor of National Poetry Month, my students created poetry collages. before open house began i hung them all outside of my classroom under the heading, "Every Child Is A Poet," which is the title of the Piri Thomas documentary.
because I am sharing poems this month, i'm going to share a few of my students' work. i hope you enjoy them as much as i did.
ps--for all images, click on them for a lager view.
"looking for love"
"king of love"
"my los angeles"
"anywhere but home"
