This time of year is Quidditch Season at our school. About eight years ago, a student worked with the gym teacher to devise a version of the Harry Potter magical game for our sixth graders to play. There are about five different things going on the field at the same time and the sixth graders spend an entire day (this coming Wednesday) playing the other sixth grade classes in a Quidditch Tournament that lasts the entire school day. (My classroom’s team name this year is ARCTIC FROST)

This week, I had them write poems celebrating the game or their team or some aspect of the game, and we had volunteers read their poems for a podcast.
- Listen to poets on Arctic Frost
- Listen to poets on Atomic Rage
- Listen to poets on Third Degree
- Listen poets on Stealth
Peace (on broomsticks, with quaffles, bludgers and snitches),
