Young poets at Northwest Elementary School recently shared their original works during the Adams Family Poetry Café.

Second-graders in Franca Adams’ class spent several weeks writing different styles of poetry, and each child picked one piece to share at the poetry café. Family members were invited to attend the writing celebration.

The class began by sharing a poem the students wrote together, “We Are,” which was modeled after a poetry mentor text, “I Am.” After that, each child came to the microphone to share a selected piece. Guests were asked to acknowledge the poets by snapping instead of clapping.
