Last week we celebrated Poem in Your Pocket Day. The national day was in April to celebrate poetry month, but we were busy with TAKS and other things, so waited to celebrate. Some of the kids seemed a little dubious when I announced the special day, but when we discussed that song lyrics "counted" as poetry, quite a few more bought into the idea. George asked if he could bring his favorite Journey song, which I already knew was "Don't Stop Believin'" because he sings it constantly. I said of course and began looking forward to George's rendition on the classic.
The big day came and I had the kids sign up with seasonal partners so they could share in a comfortable setting. They had three different partners and George sang his song each time - the whole song!
