Children in Iowa, Texas and Virginia gathered together in school libraries with their teacher librarians, teachers and others for this wonderful Google Hangout.
And we brought together four very special guests to celebrate along with us too.
Emily Arrow, Blake Hoena (Cantata Learning), Mrs. P and Robert Forbes joined us and all had something to share during our Poem in Your Pocket celebration.
Poem In Your Pocket. It was such great fun to rhyme and sing words with her.
They all loved it when he read On Top of Old Smoky and listen to his connections of growing up on a farm and exploring when he was young.
Poetry Summit during Poetry Month.
After they all shared, the schools all had a chance to ask questions from Van Meter Elementary in Iowa,
Brazosport ISD in Texas,
And to see how much our guests loved it was really neat too!
That was amazing to hear what they all came up with as they sang along with Emily one last time.
Since this was a LIVE Google Hangout, we were able to share the link other schools around the world.....and WOW, it was awesome to see dozens of others joining in too.
You have to see some of the special tweets below....
You can watch our GHO below....I promise it will be something you will enjoy sharing with your students too!
