Contact the Librarian
All students in grades first through third grade will be given the opportunity to learn a different poem each month from September through April. The library media specialist will supply these poems during your child’s library time. Students are responsible for memorizing the poem at home and then reciting the poem in school to a parent volunteer or to the library media specialist during library class.
Students who recite at least one poem will receive an invite to attend the Poetry Pockets Party at the end of the school year. Students who memorize all eight poems will also receive a special surprise – the famous “I AM GREAT I MEMORIZED EIGHT” poetry cup.
Children who recite all eight poems for all \three years (first through third grade) will receive a poetry book at their third grade promotion ceremony.
There is a bulletin board in the library that tracks each child’s progress throughout the year.
