Ostrich in my Pocket...Er, on my Street

Next week, starting April 15th through April 19th, we will be celebrating Poetry Month by launching a Poem in Your Pocket celebration.  Kids in grades 1 through 5 should keep a poem in their pocket (or shoe!).  Mr. LeDeaux and Mr. Reynolds will be asking students throughout the week if they have a poem.  If the kids can a produce a poem, they may win a small prize. It's a fun way celebrate poetry here at Mann!

Speaking of poetry.  We stumbled upon this as a class today while talking about ostriches.  It's pretty poetic in its own way...
