The Poetry Cafe 2008
culminate our Poetry unit, after learning 17
genres of poetry, the students presented a
"Poetry Cafe" for their parents! First, they
acted as waiters and waitresses and gave
their parents a complimentary $5.00 bill to
spend any way they'd like! The waiters and
waitresses then served breakfast to their
parents, as well as working on their math
skills while figuring out the check. Some of
them not only added the bill and found the
change, but added 6% sales tax, and some on
top of that took off 15% as a discount! Talk
about using your brain!!
After the parents were fed, the students
presented a poetry reading, in which they
not only shared their favorite genres of
poetry, but taught their parents how to do
it as well!
had a great time!
special thank you to Mrs. Sanford for taking
and sending me all of these pictures!
Parents, I decided to include the kids'
faces this time. The pictures were too good
not to. If anyone has a problem with their
child's face being in these pictures, please
let me know and I will immediately remove
