Why Begin The Year With Poetry? #Poetry #TeachThroughTheArts #GetOutside #Mindfulness

Our writer's workshop began this year with a focus on poetry.  I always start the year with poetry because...
*it builds confidence and stamina in each writer.
*it allows kids to play with writer's craft in a less structured genre.  This freedom gives them space to really understand each craft and how to use them in meaningful ways--in poetry and beyond!
*it allows us time to build our writing community where we find strength to share our writing and learn how to give thoughtful feedback to our friends.
*it's fun and allows us to get outside to gather inspiration!

We are now ready to dive into the writing program with confidence and excitement! I can't wait to see how my writers continue to grow and flourish!
