Specifically, it's been really fun to rejoice in these moments throughout our poetry unit. I love the little poets that are growing before my eyes!
Yesterday we watched "A Child's Garden of Poetry." It's a 24-minute special from HBO and just lovely. It's basically children talking about the power of poetry and sharing their favorite verses, which are then read by actors such as Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Dave Matthews, and more.
