We are ending our year by coming back to poetry. For me, poetry is such a beautiful way to begin and end the year as writers, because there is so much freedom within this genre.
We first read poems by Kwame Alexander to get inspired and to get back to the rhythm of poetry. We then read "I Am From" poems by my former students and reflected on who we are and where we come from.
Lastly we stepped out into the sunshine, surrounded by the green mountains, to let our ideas flow. When we came back together to share and support one another, it was so incredible to hear their voices shining through in their work. I am so excited to take this journey with them and read their final poems!
