Fifth Graders Shine in Poetry Cafe Open Mic

Standing in front of the Poetry Cafe lights, BB&N fifth graders recited their carefully constructed poems at this week’s Poetry Cafe Open Mic. Each poem told a story about something meaningful in the students’ lives, from their fun family vacations to the specific sensations experienced in an emergency room visit. With careful planning and production, fifth grade homeroom teachers Gabby Mbeki and Frances Early created a special setting for the students to show off their hard work, even incorporating the “poetry snap” as applause.
