Poetry Alive!

On Friday we were fortunate enough to host Poetry Alive! as they put on a great show for grades 2-4. There was much laughter, audience participation and a very high energy level during their 45 minute show.

Based in North Carolina, Poetry Alive! sends dynamic performers all over the country bringing poetry to life for students of all ages. In addition to the many valuable resources you can find on their website, they also feature children's poetry. So if you have a young poet at home, encourage him or her to send a poem in!

Big thanks to KCLS, our local public library system, for sponsoring this wonderful program free of charge. Check out the library website for lots of exciting upcoming programs, including a visit from Gary Paulsen!
