Week in Review: Poetry & Free Audiobooks for the Summer!

For the month of April, which is National Poetry Month, we’ve been sharing our favorite poetry and novels in verse on our Instagram page. These books can be found on our Overdrive ebook collection here. As some of you might know, one of the events we do to celebrate poetry is Poem in Your Pocket Day – students read favorite or original poems (and often, poems thought up on the spot) and then get a piece of candy. Because we’re all at home this year, students submitted videos of themselves reading poetry. Check them out below:

We shared a video of Grace reading a poem on our Instagram yesterday to close out National Poetry Month. Thanks Anika, Kai, and Grace for sharing your poems!

Audiobook Sync shares free audiobooks every summer and they’ve kicked off with Monday’s Not Coming and The 57 Bus, both books highly recommended by Ms. Melinson and Mrs. Strong.

To access these books, you’ll need the Sora app from Overdrive. Follow this link for instructions on how to get Sora and for answers to other questions you may have. If you need help, email Ms. Melinson or Mrs. Strong.

Audiobooks are only available to add to your Sora account for 1 week so be sure to sign up for email or text alerts for when new books are released. Once you add a book to your Sora shelf, that’s where it stays; borrowed audiobooks don’t expire.

Check below for the list of audiobooks to expect this summer and when they’ll be available:

Happy listening!
