New Leaves - Page Poems

Well, we had our first session of New Leaves, our altered books program at Tredyffrin Library. On the first day, we tried our hands at page poems, taking a single page from a book and isolating single words to create a poem. Here are two examples from Tuesday, thanks to Arshad and Hari, respectively:

Next week, we'll branch out a bit and try our hands at collage...

New Leaves is open to 5th and 6th graders and is held Tuesday afternoons from 4:30-5:15pm. No registration necessary; just walk right in!


  1. Bravo! This is the most creative poetry program for middle schoolers I think I've ever seen. That it is in TE makes me both proud & happy.

  2. Great lesson for students -gives them an alternative way of looking at text and art.
