After writing poems for six weeks, second-graders at Northwest Elementary School were given a forum to share their work. Teacher Franca Adams recently welcomed parents to the Adams Family Poetry Café. To simulate a real-life poetry reading, the room was illuminated with battery-powered candles and guests were encouraged to snap their fingers instead of applauding.

After a group poetry reading, children came up one-by-one to read a piece. Ms. Adams said that each student wrote about two dozen poems during the poetry unit using various techniques. Everyone selected a favorite piece to share at the poetry café with topics ranging from watermelons to dogs to monster trucks.
