Oh my gosh, the timing of your post could not have been more perfect. I am doing a poetry unit right now and just sent a note home last week to parents about having a Poetry Night. I saw the idea somewhere and thought it looked like fun for my fourth grade class. The students have been writing different types of poetry and studying famous poets. I was searching the internet yesterday, looking for ideas on how to decorate my classroom for our big night. I read your blog every week! Of course you would have a post on Poetry Night right when I needed help! It's like you read minds. Ha ha. :) I love the "open mic" idea and the cute outfits! I will be borrowing some of your ideas for our upcoming event! Thanks for posting such great blogs! You are truly amazing!
