On Friday, April 26, BSM had a poetry party in the library in honor of National Poetry Month (which takes place during the month of April). Throughout the day, English teachers brought their students to the library to learn about different forms of poetry and how to write them.

Different stations with several varieties of poetry activities were positioned all over the room. For example, one station used paint chips to help guide the student in writing, while another station used dice. One station, called Haikubes, provided colored cubes that students could combine to create Haikus.

During sixth hour, Ms. Anna Overbo’s class got the opportunity to visit the poetry party. The students didn’t have to do any preparation or work prior to the party; they just had to visit multiple stations and have a blast writing poetry. “Poetry offers an artful way to communicate like no other,” senior Brad Shibley said.

For many students, this wasn’t their first encounter with poetry. Ms. Kaia Preus, who planned the poetry party along with Library Media Specialist Ms. Laura Sylvester, incorporates poetry into some of her English classes. “Ms. Preus’ creative writing class has helped me express myself through poetry,” senior Matt Guggemos said.

Overall, the poetry party was a success. The students were able to learn about an important topic in a productive and creative manner. “This was a super cool way to value poetry and wordplay,” Overbo said.
