ME! Told in Poetry

Monday, April 8, 2013, 4:30 p.m.

Bessie ColemanIn honor of National Poetry Month, we’ll read bits of Nikki Grimes’ Talking About Bessie, a story about Elizabeth Coleman, the first African American female pilot. 

Just like Grimes, we will write short poems in the voices of important people in our lives (our family, our friends, our teachers) to help us tell our own story.
