In 2019, I did an in-person poetry party and we invited families come into the classroom. Each student created their slide with their favorite poem they had written during our poetry unit. Students presented their poems while their slide was projected on our whiteboard for parents to see close up. Parents loved the visual of the poem and images and it made it more of a celebration with the background.
In Spring 2020, my class did this virtually via Zoom and I received many parent emails afterwards stating how much they enjoyed it, especially during Covid. I emailed the party invitation to families along with the Zoom link and encouraged them to pop some popcorn to make it even more special. I shared the slideshow on my screen and each student took turns sharing their poem. We clapped an cheered just like in the classroom!
- Poetry Celebration Invitations in Google Slides (3 choices)

- Step-by-Step instructions for hosting a poetry celebration: creating and sharing the invitation with parents, how to customize the student slides, instructions for during the virtual or in-person celebration
