Surprise Super Saturday was lots of fun!
“What was the SURPRISE?” you ask…  well, we had two!

  1. our activity — Push Pin Poetry, to celebrate National Poetry Month
  2. our new Children’s Program Director — Sarah introduced the kids to JoAnn Kitchel before we all had some fun with poetry!

Miss. Sarah talked with the kids about poetry, read a few poems and then we had Miss. Mary Katherine and Miss. JoAnn recite their favorite kid poems from memory!  What a treat!  The kids got down to business and started clipping out words that they ended up using to create poems on their push-pin poetry boards.

If you missed the action and would like to try your hand at Push-Pin Poetry, we’ll have the board up in the library this week!  Also, Sarah will post the word sheets and instructions so you can recreate this fun activity at home.


To inspire you, here are some of the poems that were created today:

shimmering knee. strong jellybean. imagine what you want to be. Just look at me!


magic, shimmering, very kind jellybean learned to squeak.


the whole world is shimmering with stars.

delay job. almost blown up.


Some poetry created by other patrons on the big board today:
