Poetry Month Shelves
Our 2022 Poetry Festival was a tremendous success! Wayne Valley Library Media Specialist Erica Foster and Wayne Hills Library Media Specialist Kristen Caldwell created and oversaw the events.
Over the course of two days, over 200 students visited the Wayne Hills library to participate in several poetry writing and reading stations, learn about poetry, and embrace its uniqueness.
Students were given the opportunity to work on imitation poems, blackout poems, acrostic poems, concrete "word bubble" poems, read poetry books and novels-in-verse, flip through The Lantern (our school literary and art magazine), and play a "Hip Hop Lyrics or Classical Poetry?" game. Students were encouraged to submit their work to The Lantern, and share it with their friends and teachers.
