Poetry Cafe Night

I organized our school's first Poetry Cafe Night with the help of my teammates.  We invited all the fourth graders to attend a night of Poetry reading in our Cafe (aka Cafeteria ).  We tried to create an atmosphere of a cafe with tablecloths and centerpieces.  The night included poetry, bongo music and refreshments.  The idea was inspired from Beth Newingham's site:

The children could share an original poem or a favorite poem.  They could perform solo or with a buddy. We also organized a bake sale.

Here are some photos from the evening...I wish I took more.  (I was too busy) The night was a great success!  I will post their Poetry Books on another Post.


  1. That's such a great idea! I've been wanting to have something like that for a while now for my students when we do our poetry unit. Thanks for sharing!
