Had an amazing time on Skype with the brilliant students at Stadium Drive Elementary! I got to read a lot of the students’ poems this year and in 2018, this class mastered the shape poem.

Anytime a student (Alisha) writes a poem (Calculator) so reminiscent of one of my favorite Shel Silverstein poems (Homework Machine), I get really excited to share them both.

And Cooper’s response poem to Could You Hug A Cactus? was so good (and a very solid argument against the idea) that I had to response poem back to his response poem. New penpal? Maybe…

A huge thank you to Stadium Drive for having me my digital representation once again. Looking forward to next year!!!
