A Big Bite

What a great coffeehouse! The original poetry recited by the children, their art work on the wall, and the open mic were all the ingredients of a great presentation
and wonderful memories. Thanks to everyone who participated and thanks to all of you for the delicious reception afterword. Egyptian Mummy masks

Fall Leaves

Sumi-e paintings and haiku

Mexican Tile Art

Watercolors on primed paper bags, inspired by poet, Douglas Florian.

Enjoying the snacks, and yes, everyone has their fork in that bowl!

Mrs. Doggett made Ralph Waldo Emerson's words sound so beautiful. Success!

Mrs. Harrison recited Joyce Kilmer's poem, "Trees"-twice! She read it again in Mrs. Merten's room.

Congratulations to Mrs. Chaudhury for reciting her Emily Dickinson poem. This was the first time she read a poem in the United States, in English! Way to go, you did an awesome job!
