So here’s a challenge for your mind: write and record your own “My Community” poem.
Here’s how it works:
- Download the poem
- Write the poem using the prompts
- Film yourself reading it and challenge two friends to do the same
- Post it to your social media, tagging the two friends you challenge, tagging us (@DCSCORES) and using the hashtag #AtHomePoetryChallenge
Check out the first poem from our friend Joanna Lohman for an example – and then show us what you’ve got!
It’s quick, it’s fun, and it lets you be part of the solution – building a resilient, supportive community around the kids who need it the most.
