We published their writing by turning their poem into a fancy bookmark. When the bookmarks were complete, we did a poetry reading for our publishing celebration. All of the children sat in a circle. I brought jack-o-lantern light up candle to put in the middle of the circle. All those little poets sitting in a circle reading their poems by the light of a festive candle was just about the cutest darn thing!
The paper we used is from my fall themed stationary pack.
Today, they will take home their published piece (on the bookmark), the draft in their own writing and the memory of their first poetry reading!
