Push Pin Poetry

Inspired by Pinterest, we set out to create an interactive Poetry display. In March, we will kick off our annual poetry contest. This is display one of three. Two and three will be going up soon, so stay tuned!!

Celebrate poetry with “Push Pin Poetry.” We didn’t have a big magnetic sheet to hang and this board was in need of an updated display.

We searched online for “word lists,” specifically magnetic poetry word lists. And since we are in an urban setting we tried to add more “urban” vocabulary–words we hear the teens say on a daily basis like ratchet, trifflin’, shorty, ballin’, etc.

I made my own envelopes out of leftover scrapbook paper and a tutorial I found on Pinterest.
