Create a Speaking Area for Your Poetry Cafe

By Beth Newingham on April 27, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

We are lucky to have plastic risers in our building that can also be folded up to create a mini stage for our Poetry Cafe.  We use this as the place where students read their poems.

It's nice because it puts them slightly higher than the audience but not so high that it loses the feel of a coffee shop. On the stage we have nothing but a microphone stand, a stool, and an antique lamp to add some authenticity.
