I challenged you to photograph yourself in a cool place reading poetry. Here are my top two picks. Love them!
This from Daniel and Gemma:
(Note from Paula: This is an extra cool idea and all you need is a cardboard box and some cushions. I have one $50 book voucher to give away for this challenge so I am giving it to Gemma and Daniel to get more stock for the nest. Thanks for sharing.)
We built a poetry nest and read lots of poems in it and then wrote poems too. It was a stormy day so it was nice to be in a poetry nest! We go to Adventure school in Whitby.
This from Room 8 at Adventure School:
(Note from Paula: What a cool idea. I started to think of all the perfect poems in the Treasury to read at a zoo and I came up with quite a few! I love this and have shared with Stephanie. Thanks so much!)
Room 8 from Adventure School Whitby had a zoo sleepover last week at Wellington Zoo. We had an amazing time and what better place than the zoo to read some poetry to the wonderful array of animals there. We thought that ‘Zoo Chimpanzee’ by Stephanie Mayne was a pretty good poem to share at the zoo.
We hope you like the photo of Jorja, Noah, Matthias, Angus and Luci — some of the children from the Room 8 Poetry Group, Adventure School, Whitby, sharing poetry at the zoo!
