Poetry Friday: Ripple Effect of Poetry Postcards


Poetry Friday is hosted by Sylvia at Poetry for Children. Thanks Sylvia!


Last month was quite the month for celebrating student work.  And for sending over sixty poetry postcards.  Seven were sent overseas. They cause a poetry ripple effect.

This week students received these postcards which was a total surprise as our postcards are all about paying it forward and making someone’s day.  They arrive late yesterday so I can’t wait to share with students today.  Thanks Mrs’ Graves 4th grade class (left) and Michelle (right).

And then there were a few ripple at blogs that shared postcards with their readers.

Matt shared the postcard from Mylee at Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme.

Michelle shared Ciara’s postcard at Today’s Little Ditty.

Liz shared Juanita’s at her blog and totally got Juanita’s backward words.

Poetry ripples were meant to be created.  Let’s keep making them.


Happy Friday.

Happy Poetry.

  1. I can just imagine how excited kids will be in receiving postcards and learning how readers reacted to their post cards. What a fun project!

  2. I loved receiving my postcard! I have it on my desk at work. Many thanks to you and your students!

  3. I love receiving my postcard, Jone, & will share it next week. Please tell the students that they make lots of people happy when they open their mailboxes. Nice that they’ll receive some from others, too.

  4. Sigh. I just found this tab open on my desktop, but hadn’t gotten around to reading it until now! Thank you, Jone. I’m glad Ciara’s postcard arrived– I sure do look forward to your poetry postcard project each year!

  5. I’m very late to the party – but my postcard arrived last week, too. I adored it! I’m blogging about it on my Poetry Friday post, tomorrow.
