How to Engage Student Senses with Paint Chip Poetry

how to engage student senses with paint chip poetryConfession: In addition to loving #teacherlife, TeacherPop adores all things home improvement. So when those two worlds collide—like they did this week with the Poet Warriors Project’s latest student poems—well, we’re pleased as punch.

Laura Haller’s 2nd grade class at Vanguard Classical School in Colorado experimented with several forms of expression for their Poet Warriors’ curriculum, but their “Painting Words in Colors,” a series of metaphors and similes written on Behr paint chips (like Jared Orta’s to the left) captured our hearts. See more samples of the students’ work and read helpful hints for introducing paint chip poetry to your class.

Eating Bugs for Earth Day

Earth DayHappy Earth Day! Last month we introduced you to Britney and Rafael, Lou Lahanna’s students at the Island School in Manhattan, whose cooking experiments with insects were a hit with fellow students and environmentalists alike.

Recent reports claim eating insects might not be the long-term, sustainable solution we’re searching for, but environmental stewardship is all about personal responsibility and conservation—and we’re super impressed by Britney and Rafael’s ingenuity.
