Alyssa Kirch and Classmates

October Hall of Fame Young Poet

David reading with David Wommack

I mentioned in a recent post that I visited Nancy Raider’s classroom. There I met Alyssa Kirch who was our October Hall of Fame Young Poet. I thought you might also like to meet this charming young poet and two of her classmates, David Wommack and Noah Lawson.

Many thanks to Sylvia Vardell for her guest post yesterday (11/4). A good many of you have been stopping by to read her insightful article. I’m sorry I forgot to mention her own splendid blog but in case you haven’t located it yet, here’s the address. http://poetryforchildren.blogspot.com.
For anyone interested in my Teacher page, there’s a new teaching idea for December.

The variety in this month’s poems is a pleasure to see. We’ve already had a dozen “bone” poems from adults. We still need to hear from our young poets!
