Festive Teen Poetry Happens Brings Beloved Poem Alive

video

Teen Poetry Happens at The Bean was a joyous occasion on Tuesday, December 13. We received word that The Spilled Bean owners, Shannon and Brandy Childers, had just added baby Kadee to the family shortly before the meeting. And, we recreated one of the most famous Christmas poems, "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement C. Moore, through voice, art and photography.

We had a great crowd of 35 or so to join us at The Spilled Bean. The project was a visualization technique where students draw what they hear in the poem.

I believe you will see how much fun we had doing this by watching the video. Hope you enjoy TPH "The Night Before Christmas" and have a blessed holiday season!
