While it’s still in progress, this Gargantuan Poet-Tree was begging to be photographed today. Plus, today, in Teen Tech Time, tweens and teens used our fancy-shmancy computer/screen combo in the Info Commons Lab to write Poems with an Audience! As one of the teens announced, it’s cool to mix up old school antiquated technology like crayons with the Internet and poems! They used websites like Magnetic Poetry and Scholastic’s Poetry Idea Engine to get started, but soon, they were riffing on their own, on paper and word processor too!
We will be adding to this tree~ one parent of a teen asked if she could cut some extra leaves for our somewhat newly budding tree… So expect more greenery (and poems) tomorrow!
