OAES Poetry Picnic and Dia de los ninos
The OAES Poetry Picnic and Potluck will be celebrated on Monday, April 28, 2014 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. We have so many fun events planned including:
Like a cake walk, but with poetry books as prizes!
Students and families can sit in rocking chairs and blankets and read together/ listen to poetry together. Volunteers will assist participants in writing their favorite lines from poems on bookmarks.
Decorate a Poem:
Students will choose a printed poem to decorate with markers, stickers, glitter, magazines, etc. Volunteers will assist them in crafting…
Students will draw and/ or write poems on the sidewalk in the bus circle, volunteers will assist, monitor, inspire, encourage….
Poetry Performance Station:
Students , local writers, parents, teachers, and visitors will have the opportunity to recite their poetry at one of two poetry stations on either side of bus circle. Volunteers will help students with sign-up sheet, monitor time (two minutes max), encourage….
Poetry Word Scramble:
Students will make poems using provided words which they will paste onto paper. Volunteers will help and encourage them.
Poetry on Demand:
Poets/ writers from the community will write poem on a subject of students choosing. We would love to have volunteers to either write poems (it is so much fun!) or assist in crowd control.
We will need folks to help serve food.
