Anancy Writes Poetry!

For the upcoming Anancy Festival, I’ve gone back into my folders from my days as a “Bicycle Poet” (see below) and updated an exercise that should enable parents and children to write a poem by the end of the presentation. The exercise should also be of interest to educators who are interested in meeting Common Core State Standards: Literacy and Multicultural Literacy.

I won’t tell you how it’s done—you’ll have to come to the festival for that--but the primary goal is to have parents and children working together on an imaginative project—which is what the Anancy Festival is all about: Family Fun!

Hope to see you there!
