More Slamming!

March 2012

On our TLC Spirit Day the Monhegan School and the Ashley Bryan School met again to rehearse their collaborative poems in preparation for their first EVER virtual poetry slam! 

To have the kids practice their poems in a comfortable and safe environment, we had them pair up with one another to "slam" their poems in teams of two. The "teams" met together first to discuss what poems they were going to read and how they wanted to present their poems.


The challenge was that the teams had to present their poems in two different ways by changing their emotions, phrasing, voice, and body language while reading their poems aloud!


The Monhegan boys just LOVE sharing their writing with others... especially the kids from the Ashley Bryan School! They truly feel like they are apart of our classroom. 

This Monhegan Eighth grader teamed up with the eighth grader from Ashley Bryan to read aloud his poem, "Think!"


Bravo! Bravo!



Are these kids natural slammers or what!?
