Celebración de poesia

Last Friday we had a Celebración de poesíathe final presentation of poetry.  Students spent some time putting the final artistic touches to the poems. It was a very fun afternoon which ended with students reciting poetry to a classroom full of parents. It was satisfying to see so many Latino parents and English speaking parents listen to poetry in Spanish. It has always felt like a divided experience to see parents in different places. For example like when the meeting were done separately Spanish and English. However for poetry they were all together and sharing the joy of seeing their sons and daughters become confident bilingual students. Students had so much fun! I was definitely proud, and moved by what they had to say, some were silly some were very heart warming. I could see how proud the students were of their work.
