Poem in Your Pocket Day

As part of National Poetry Month, students in Mrs. Deckard’s 5th grade classes participated in Poem in Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 21, 2016.  

Students selected poems or composed an original work and carried it with them in their pocket all day, sharing the poem and the excitement of the event with others throughout the school.

Students reflected on their experience upon completing the celebration. These were some of their comments:

“I think the experience was great as a whole. We got to do something different and read to different classes. The experience helped me learn to speak aloud to others with expression. I also got lots of attention! I loved the experience because I got to boost my confidence. I really want to do it again. I liked going around reading our poems; however, I’m a shy person. This experience made me feel confident.”
